RFC: Packaging buildd

The buildd source available from :pserver:anon@cvs.linux-m68k.org:/CVS
(module wanna-build) does not have a functional debian directory.  I
have also not been able to contact the maintainers so far--is this
source actively maintained?

I have added autoconf/make support, and repackaged it using debhelper.
So far, the packages are built almost the same as the old version of
the packaging (but make is now used to install the files, rather than
copying every file manually), though I will change this.  I have added
a buildd init script, crontab and emacs install/remove scripts for

sbuild is now available in Debian, so this package will have to be
removed, and some bits moved to the buildd package.
Sensible conffile locations e.g. under /etc/buildd.
Put some of the scripts under /usr/share/<package>/bin, e.g. in
Write manpages--some are zero-length in CVS!!

Does anyone who uses buildd/wanna-build/rbuilder have any comments?  I
don't yet have a big enough HDD to run an autobuilder offline, so I
have not tried to use it yet.  I won't be able to do much more till
June, but I'll have plenty of time then to fix things.

The packaging is far from complete, but what I have done so far is
available from http://www-users.york.ac.uk/~rl117/buildd/
(source and i386 debs).
