Please, could a kind soul build python2 2.0-7 for m68k and unstable, and

Am I the only one who finds it disturbing that any random person can compile a package and upload it to "Incoming" and it might become part of a distribution, or at least used to test a distribution? Or am I missing some part of the process here? Perhaps it's just the fact that I'm a security type, and therefor prone to paranoia, but this would be an interesting way to incorporate a trojan horse into a distribution. Ken Seefried, CISSP
