Re: More pbuilder use!

Actually perhaps software should be built outside of clean chroots. Why? Because if there is a possibility that a dirty chroot will cause the package to fail, there is a bug in some peice of software. It could prevent a user from recompiling on his own system, which thusly defeats the point of having the source in the first place. If a package Fails To Build From Source on a end-user system it is an RC bug. By bug definitions i would say a minimum of 'serious', but 'critical' would be better. Why? Simple: If users can make the changes they want, than Debian is NOT free. If it is not free, it has failed.

If Debian is not free, it has failed. - Joe Smith
