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).

If we stay as it is, we'll continue to get slowed by badly built packages/softwares. ciao, -- Luca - De Whiskey's - De Vitis | Elegant or ugly code as well aliases: Luca ^De [A-Z][A-Za-z\-]*[iy]'\?s$ | as fine or rude sentences have Luca, a wannabe ``Good guy''. | something in common: they local LANG="it_IT@euro" | don't depend on the language.
