The disk full failure is obvious. The corrupted chroot is not; it
looks like a typical FTBFS bug when it's not.
I'm trying to push things along because this is blocking a bunch of
Moreover, because it seems to be extremely difficult to know who
manages which buildd's and get responses from them, I suspect that
once it's cleaned up the fastest way to get my package rebuilt with a
non-corrupted chroot will not be to ask the buildd people to requeue
it, but instead to just do another upload to trigger a recompile.
That sucks, but it is currently the only clear way to get rapid
response out of the buildds: confine yourself to what is automated.
