Re: Is Sid for broken stuff? Is it too much to ask for testing the packages?

Another two suggestions for pbuilder (assuming that they aren't already

1. When a package failes to build, pbuilder cleans up the environment.
   It would be nice if there was a way of logging in to the chroot
   session first, so you can tell what went wrong.

2. Automatic package testing mode; instead of installing the source, it
   would install/reinstall/remove/purge the generated binaries (this
   might be difficult though if the package generates multiple
   conflicting packages...).

3. Manual package testing mode; similar to above but allows DD to login
   and try it out.

On wait, thats 3 things. Ooops!
