 Oh good, I already implemented the IGNORED feature by myself ...

 You mean main, contrib and non-free ?
 Because this sounds rather long. Anyway our machine here seems to be 
 a little bit more stable (500Mhz,128Mb).

 We should develop dbuild into an automatic cron-driven alpha package
 compiler, which sends mail if something went wrong. We could then 
 concentrate on the main topics.

  .., but is the interesting part too ...

 I could set up an automatic compiler here, the only problem I have is
 disk space. (~2.5 Gigs will not be enough for all sources and
 dbuild should decide which packages need a recompile (according to
 quinn-diff), get them from the archive, compile, and send the binary
 Packages needing work should be posted to debian-alpha ....


 btw I will try to compile net now ...
