* When I was bootstrapping the ARM distribution to use an versioned
glibc, I couldn't upload the .debs I made to master, because they
were incompatible with the old ones (which used an unversioned
glibc). If we had a staging area for the versioned packages, I
could have uploaded them to master and assembled the distribution
there. That would have been a bit easier than what I did (create
a separate distribution on my ftp site).
