Re: -dbg packages; are they actually useful?

I support my co-maintainer on that..:-)

One should note that samba-dbg is sometimes used and already allowed
tracking down some segfault bugs, which are pretty common with samba
packages as smbd panics trigger a mail to root that recommends sending
a bug report...if the panic is reproducible in some way.

But, indeed, learning about the system that's in Ubuntu is great.

By coincidence, this is time for GSOC proposals. Wouldn't be something
like "implement a backtrace anaylysing system similar to Ubuntu's"
something that could be useful.

Alternative: "implement ddebs.debian.org"
