Neither i. This is why i would like to receive baklogs mailed to maintainer if
autobuild fails. But i would like to receive backlogs even for pre-autobuilds,
so that i could fix the problem, contact the upstream etc.

BTW, i think that the correct workflow would be:
Move package from incoming to autobuild. If all architectures build, continue
(as before this change); else, if not builded but is not upstrea/maintainer
fault, continue (as before this change). Else reject the package.

If we stay as it is, we'll continue to get slowed by badly built
