while I managed to trigger autobuilding on all architectures for one package
(velvet) in February, the same approach applied to another another one (emboss)
gives problems: the architecture-dependant packages are built, but they are not
transferred to the archive. In both cases I think I did the same:
- Remove mention of the local build architecture in the Binary field.
- Remove mention of the architecture-dependant packages in the Description and
- Upload only the architecture-independant packages using the hand-edited Debian
source control file.
Was there a change in the meantime that makes the trick impossible ?
