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

   set with all architectures enters unstable at once.

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.
