As a general comment, we always welcome people 
interested in supporting release builds (and 
preferably at least occassional snapshot builds 
too, so that problems with particular platforms 
are discovered earlier). This is true even for 
platforms which can be supported by existing core 
team members at the moment (like 32-bit .deb 
packages). Release building for every platform 
needs some effort and time which can better be 
invested to FPC development (not even talking 
about need for backup if someone having access to 
a particular platform is currently too busy, on 
holiday, has broken machine, etc.). Any 
volunteers are welcome to contact us here in the 
list or send me a private e-mail (I'll talk to 
Stefan and Rob in the meantime directly to check 
how serious their interest really is ;-) ).
