        The end goal is not just to have packages built on the
 buildd -- and important goal for Debian, certainly, but not the only
 one we have. As promoters of free software, we also are committed to
 have packages build for our users, in a "real" environment, not just
 a sterile, controlled. artificial "debian specific test"

        Moving towards requiring all packages be built in such an
 artificial test environment takes us further away from
 ensuring the second goal is met.

I know you think you thought you knew what you thought I said, but I'm
not sure you understood what you thought I meant.
