I run sbuild to build every package prior to upload.

While most developers are conscientious enough to make sure their packages build, one does see enough crap packages that IMO this (minimal) bar should probably be kept. It's also a good sanity check, after all, we should always make sure upgrades, removal and purging of each binary package works prior to uploading. Regards, Roger -- .''`.
