Must I do two > uploads or is there a way to merge the two dsc files? Only a source build generates a dsc file. You shouldn't be building source more than once. The dsc files should also be identical, in any case. You _do_ need to use mergechanges on your .changes files and upload it as one, especially if you are on a slowlink. Otherwise the autobuilder might already have started building before your upload finishes, wasting the CPU (and buildd maintainer's) time. -- Ryan Murray, Debian Developer (email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org) The opinions expressed here are my own.
