Using buildds only (was: Results of the meeting...)

That would be very good, indeed. I am very much in favour of allowing
only source-only uploads and having all binaries build by the buildds
only. The argument against it is, that DDs wouldn't check, whether
the package builds cleanly etc. I think, that this is a poor argument,
but anyway. Fortunately, Martin Krafft came up with the idea of
allowing source-only uploads only together with a signed test protocol.
The test protocol would have to include the output of lintian, linda,
and piuparts - warnings allowed, errors not. Maybe we would need one
more buildd for i386 and one or two buildds for 'all', which does not
have a buildd, AFAIK.
