OK, so I have to wait until a buildd-admin can do something about this.
 Is there anything further I should do, or should I just wait?

I'm not sure what kind maintenance would require here.  I'm happy to
handle bug reports and answer support questions for any of those
packages.  On launchpad, there's a way to register to support a
particular package in a particular release -- is there anyway to say
I'll support a particular package in _any_ (recent) release?

You're entirely welcome.  And thanks for your work on ubuntu!
