I didn't see a concrete proposal in your email, only information about
where to find gnusolaris build logs.  Can you elaborate?

Minimally, package maintainers and developers could take a look on our logs
and see if there's anything wrong. If there is, in many cases the fix is obvious.

Ideally though, there'd be an augmented policy of package acceptance,
reflecting the fact that the packages with "Architecture: any" should build
and run on one of the Debian POSIX-compliant systems. NexentaOS is
certainly one such system. To help implement this new policy we could "plug"
our AutoBuilder [1] into the existing build environment.
