I am certainly interested helping with piuparts but I am not confident I understand where you would like the project to go. > For running piuparts, and reporting bugs based on what it finds, there's > piuparts.cs.helsinki.fi, a fairly fast machine donated by HP.

I used a modified version that only check for a small number of problems and which is able to process a hundred of packages at once to make finding and reporting of bug easier. > piuparts.cs.helsinki.fi isn't currently running piuparts, my latest > upload broke things: piuparts now needs to run python2.4, python2.3 > doesn't have the subprocess module; this needs packaging changes, which > are slightly complicated by the fact that piuparts needs to run on sarge > as well as testing+sid (piuparts.cs.helsinki.fi runs sarge). Is it not possible to run piuparts in a sid chroot ? This is what I do in my setup. Cheers, -- Bill. <firstname.lastname@example.org> Imagine a large red swirl here.
