* Package name : mini-buildd
Version : 0.8.3
Upstream Author : Stephan Suerken <email@example.com>

Programming Lang: Python, Shell
Description : Minimal Debian buildd
Follows an excerpt from the README:
Mini-buildd is an easy-to-setup Debian autobuilder and
repository. Its general notion is that of addons for a Debian
base distribution (like etch, lenny, or sid) with an emphasis on
clean builds and package checking.
In essence, it glues together standard and approved Debian/Unix tools
in dedicated Debian packages. It aims for easyness of configuration
Examples of intended usages:
* build, test and repo system for a Debian developer.
* build and repo system for private Debian package repositories.
* build and repo system for an organisation (add-on packages to a Debian base).
Status && Future
The 0.8.x are rather stable and used in production. It already features
* Fully configurable via debconf.
* Fully automated setup (repos, chroots).
* Uses LVM snapshots for efficient and secure chroot handling.
* Experimental distribution per base for testing.
* Enforce a bpo-like versioning scheme.
* Uploads as source package only, all builds are done in defined chroots.
* QA-Checking of packages (lintian and others).
* Auto-backports: Allows automated "no-changes" backports
with only one upload.
There are also some things mbd does not have, but would like to
see in future versions:
* Using mini-dinstall imposes some limitations; especially
mbd does not use pooling and cannot build different
packages concurrently; we will either drop mini-dinstall at
some point, or use a pimped rewritten version.
* Staging yet (we would like to see some manual staging facility).
* Package maintenance (maybe a very simple web interface).
* There's is currently no proper manual (debconf texts is the
best you can get at this point ;).
