I know I can look at build logs -- if they are provided to bul build list 
-- to know why a package is not available.

The pkg_summary files tell me what packages are available.

A few years ago I asked about packages keeping track of the person who 
built them.

Anyways, I am trying to figure out why gcc3-java (or maybe gcc34-java) is 
not listed in the NetBSD/x86_64/4.0_2007Q3/All/pkg_summary database. An 
answer to that would be appreciated.

But also being able to know about missing packages for others would be 
useful too -- without having to ask. Where do we keep the details? And if 
not available, how can we provide this?
