>From debian-dev:

* Debian Autobuilding Infrastructure Rewrite *
Student: Philipp Kern, Mentor: Luk Claes

   Rewrite the software that currently runs the Debian autobuilding
infrastructure in a way that makes it more maintainable and robust. It
will use Python as its programming language and PostgreSQL for the
database backend. By harmonizing buildds, many build failures can be
prevented and wasteful workload on buildd volunteers can be reduced.

As both the student and the mentor are Debian Developers it is IMO a
good probability that something nice will come from this.
