And so you put the problem on the shoulders of the buildd admins. Sorry, but
that behaviour makes me choke. I've CCed DAM as this behaviour is absolutely not
acceptable for DDs.

No. Even DDs make mistakes and requiring to build packages in a clean chroot
before uploading them is a *very* good way to avoid a lot of annoying bugs.

No way. At least to stop people like you who prefer to let the buildd admins do
