mips and mipsel haven't been configured for the new security queues;
it's DSA's plan to move them to faster machines until that occurs.
So it's more a lack of man power. However, if your proposed machine
is a fast one, please write to hardware-donations at debian.org and
CC: debian-admin at lists.debian.org anyway.

m68k is bitten by a dak bug, the removal of m68k from etch has
resulted in dak not accepting m68k for sarge also.

arm was delayed because toffee, the arm buildd is painfully slow
and also building unstable, which slows down things a lot. It's
planned to move this to a faster machine for some time.
Arm builds should appear real soon.
