There are several types of mail that buildd-mail handles:
- mail from the administrator in response to build logs; this is pretty much
- mail from dinstall; this isn't strictly necessary, but you will need to
clear out your `upload' directory by hand if these aren't received
- mail from wanna-build to say that new packages are available; this isn't
very important at all.

Someone has to sign the packages you build, though it doesn't necessarily have
to be you. More significant is the fact that you need an account on auric to
access the wanna-build database.
