Ok, I've uploaded a few, we'll see how dinstall reacts before I upload more.
I'm not using quinn-diff or anything to drive this, so it's possible that
some of the uploads will be rejected because it's not a newer version that
what is already in the archive. Frankly, for the moment, letting dinstall
figure that out and just tossing anything it drops into REJECT is the easiest
thing for me to do... ergo my interest in seeing how it reacts to a few uploads
before I flood it.

I will the next time I get a few minutes. Troup suggested 'buildd' as the
replacement for dbuild, but I don't have a pointer. Is it part of the wanna
suite, or something different?

Yep. Is there a "public" Debian netwinder at this point? Mine is sitting on
a T1, but the bandwidth isn't really mine to share, so it's not clear that I
should put such a server here. On the other hand, if the bandwidth to the
server is just transactions consisting of lists of packages, it might not be
a problem. Will investigate.
I don't really have the time to spend right now, but it only took a few
minutes to get dbuild fired up, and if it helps flesh out the debian-arm tree
a bit, what the heck...
