Re: [buildd] releasing lenny
-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
It's just a pain getting everything resigned by a DD and I don't use a
buildd for most of these builds so there are no build logs ATM anyway.
I still need to make changes to dports w-b, and these binaries will
never be released with Debian. I am a NM, which means that I should be
a DD soon (I'm mostly done with T&S 1, just need to write a manpage),
likely before we even have TLS in the kernel. Before we even
considered staging on d-ports, I was handling building and lenny
archive administraion on 127.0.0.1.
Now if I don't have upload rights, I'm still willing to help, it just
becomes rather frustating to do so.
