I am very disoriented by your disagreement as I have the impression that nobody
proposed that failures to build on non-minimal environments should be taken
less seriously as they are now.

More and more developers use a chroot for the package they upload. This does
not mean that they do not try to build it on non-artificial environments before
that final step.

What we probably miss is the local build logs from the package preparation.
More and more packages are stored in a VCS. Recently, I have started to store
build logs in a branch of the packages I maintain with Git. Is there an interest
for standarisation ?

In the context of this discussion, the advantage of having the local build logs
stored somewhere is that we would be able to know how many developers upload
packages built in a chroot.

Have a nice day,
