To make this a bit more practical and directly useful: ssh leda.debian.net # I see there's a 'tg' user there already; we may need to ask for a glaubitz one, too wanna-build -A m68k -d unstable --list=needs-build | head -n 10 # or so # now pick one or more packages from the list wanna-build -A m68k -d unstable <package>_<version> [ <package>_<version> ... ] wanna-build -A m68k -d unstable --list=building # should now show your packages! Some notes: - Distribution is optional, defaults to unstable. - You don't need to specify the section (which is also given in the needs-build output), just the package and version number are sufficient. - If you change your mind on building a package, use --give-back <package>_<version> - If a build failed, use --failed <package>_<version> so it's clear what the situation is. This wants an explanation that it'll take from stdin, or you can use (I think) -m to specify it. Note you can't mark a package as failed unless you've claimed it, so do that first if you've got a list already ;-) - use --info to get detailed information on a package; it's the only command that doesn't require the version number when specifying packages, and is useful if you want to manipulate the status of a particular package but you don't know what its current version number is. - there's plenty of more options, RTFHO (Read The Fine Help Output ;-) -- Copyshops should do vouchers. So that next time some bureaucracy requires you to mail a form in triplicate, you can mail it just once, add a voucher, and save on postage.
