Re: First pass all buildds before entering unstable

just an idea from a completely uneducated person regarding buildd:
What about if each freshly uploaded package which contains architecture any
packages would enter kind of a staging area first and buildds grab these

Nooooo!!! it would delay to much the entry of some important packages in
unstable. It would maybe improve some architectures, but definitely
would reduce extensive testing of newer versions.
Unstable IMHO should be more near to upstream-side as possible, to
improve GNU/Linux at whole, not only the Debian distributions.
BTW: How many developers have access and know how to test packages in
*all* other architectures? So it would be more pressure on developers
with architectures specific knowelenge.
