This sounds to me like you are trying to automate common sense. If you
see packages that have good ~arch ebuilds that appear to be fermenting,
please file a bug. Rumours of unresponsive arch teams have been greatly
exaggerated!

The worst that could happen is that a more exotic arch sees your bug and
decides "sorry, we would rather unkeyword it" rather than "okay, we will
stable that". Either way seems a valid outcome though?

I can't speak for other arches than AMD64, but we are happy to receive
more than the current influx of bugs, particularly if you are willing to
take suggestions to heart (a lot of QA niggles get shaken out in AT
reports lately).

Regards,
Tony V.
