Yup, see https://buildd.debian.org/build.cgi?pkg=r-base which reports details on the build of the snapshot I uploaded yesterday. Summary state is:

Version	Architecture	Latest Build Time	Latest Build State
2.13.0~20110316-1	alpha  	     		Thu Mar 17 15:07:25 2011	maybe-successful
			amd64			Thu Mar 17 14:09:25 2011	maybe-successful
			armel			Thu Mar 17 15:15:10 2011	maybe-successful

			kfreebsd-i386		Thu Mar 17 14:27:10 2011	maybe-successful
			mips			Thu Mar 17 15:39:41 2011	maybe-successful
			mipsel			Thu Mar 17 23:18:13 2011	maybe-successful
			powerpc			Thu Mar 17 14:18:20 2011	maybe-successful
			s390			Thu Mar 17 14:13:31 2011	maybe-successful
			sparc			Thu Mar 17 14:35:22 2011	maybe-successful

(Intel 32-bit not listed as my local upload is not rebuilt on the build servers; we will do that 'eventually' but so far we don't.)

(And 'maybe-successful' is the strongest wording here meaning absence of failure which does not by itself presence of success ;-)

So for anyone running Debian testing and willing to fetch this from unstable, especially on the more esoteric platforms (s390 anyone? ;-): please do so.

CRAN ports are usually not built; if you want Ubuntu or Debian backports tweak Michael's or Johannes' arm...
