The recent archive rebuilds were IIRC done by Matthias Klose. But I
guess you as a Canonical employee and core-dev might have the needed
permissions too (or can get them) to trigger an archive rebuild in a PPA
I don't know how exactly this works but as far as I know LP has some
build-in support for them so you don't need to upload each source
package. You might want to ask #launchpad or Matthias as he did some
archive rebuilds already for advice how to exactly set it up.

(And let William Grant know about it so he can set up a FTBFS page to
track the build failures.)
