> The basic procedure for setting up your own autobuilder is this:
As a start I suggest you look into tools/build.sh on
debian-amd64.alioth.debian.org. Put that into a 64bit chroot and add
packages to the "list" file. The full buildd infrastructure requires
a lot of stuff only needed later when you start spreading jobs around
to multiple buildds or when you have multiple archs.
Get the base system rebuild from source and installed as 64bit only
first before you think about setting up the full buildd
Also get alioth access for debian-amd64. If you are in the
debian-amd64 group I can setup a repository under
pure64/dists/sid/main/binary-amd64/ and pure64/pool/ or something.
