It is trivially to proof that in most cases maintainer of failed
dependancy is closer to the problem than that of "indirectly" broken

wip/slate and infrastructure failures are rare excludions.

I thought about inclusion of both maintainers. But I didn't do so
because in this case I had problems with 90-columns limit of textual
report.txt. I'll think about how to reorganize this section.

distbb provides separate file that contains only "directly" failed packages
and many other useful META/*.txt files.

   $ wget
   $ grep asau@ packages_failed.txt
