This sounds sensible.

Maybe a complete list once a week, and a sort of diff [a diff between
diff files? hmm..] every day?  And maybe make the list available via ftp
/ http?

Or just post the whole thing every day, that gives us an incentive to
keep the list short by compiling stuff :-)

FWIW: I've been compiling most of the mail section last night, and that
went reasonably OK. However, I discovered (of course, at the end) that
I'd been running a 2.1.87 kernel instead of 2.0.3x. I don't think this
influences the compilation of packages much, however; am I right in
thinking this? Anyway, I'll upload what I have to
ftp://ftp.murphy.nl/pub/debian/alpha/TEST/ . The subdirectory LOGS
contains the output from the dpkg-buildpackage runs, in case anyone's

Another point: smail couldn't link against libident, because
libident_0.21-3.deb contains a STRIPPED library! Argghh!
