But whatever it is, it would be better to get some grasp of reality, and
find out what is regressing.
We could probably find out about what would be our 'apt-get upgrade'
and how we can fix it.
It's rather difficult to know the fix before knowing what is broken.
With pbuilder, it's just
pbuilder-user-mode-linux create --distribution woody
and off you go doing apt-get dist-upgrade to another distribution.
You should be able to do 'execute' script to automate, and
I lack the hardware resource to perform all tests; most
tests testing the whole Debian distribution take more than one month
using standard standalone PC hardware; so some help would
really be appreciated.
