Oh good, I already implemented the IGNORED feature by myself ...

You mean main, contrib and non-free ?
Because this sounds rather long. Anyway our machine here seems to be
a little bit more stable (500Mhz,128Mb).
We should develop dbuild into an automatic cron-driven alpha package
compiler, which sends mail if something went wrong. We could then
concentrate on the main topics.

.., but is the interesting part too ...
I could set up an automatic compiler here, the only problem I have is
disk space. (~2.5 Gigs will not be enough for all sources and
dbuild should decide which packages need a recompile (according to
quinn-diff), get them from the archive, compile, and send the binary
Packages needing work should be posted to debian-alpha ....
btw I will try to compile net now ...
