Your release manager publically stated they "do require that packages
build from source in the same distribution (i.e., sarge)".
If you call this stupid, please discuss it with your release managers
It's a known bug in the testing scripts that they don't handle build
dependencies as dependencies resulting in such bugs.

_you_ I woulnd't have sent the second one.

But if the same problem re-occurs, I'll refile such a bug.
If you disagree, please convince your release managers that sarge
packages do not have to be buildable inside sarge.
