They should be up-to-date now, with an indication of success or failure
(and a log in the latter case, though in a different place on the page
from previously).  Note that only packages containing libraries are built.

Your package failed to build, because editline.h is not in a subdirectory
on Debian systems (like the one used for the build).  You'd need to check
for plain editline.h too.  But then it fails the sign of read_history
test, presumably because it's an old version (1.12).
