Re: Bug#194678: Build, Test and Sign when it is fine.
[For -devel readers: summary of issue:
Should debuild (in the devscripts package) automatically use the
options -us -uc when calling dpkg-buildpackage, so that the package
can be tested before signing, or not?
Remember also that, at present at least, there are no standard "sign
dsc/changes" options, so the override for using -us -uc automatically
would be less-than-familiar to begin with. But this is a short-term

As I think I said at the time, I don't want debuild to behave by
default differently from dpkg-buildpackage. But if there's some
concensus that this is desirable behaviour, then I will implement it.
So copying to -devel; please cc: the bug report in your replies.
