A prerequisite to automatically add debug packages for all architectures
is to change the way how packages are uploaded and/or build[1].  In the
upcoming ftpmaster meeting[2] from the 21st until the 27th of March, one
possible way to change it (or rather a part of it) will be discussed:

| * Throwaway DD built .debs (well, let's have the fight^Wdiscussion)

I suggest further discussing debug packages after we know the result of
the ftpmaster meeting.

I also suggest to add discussing the required changes for automatic
debug packages on ftpmaster side to the meeting's agenda.


 [1] Currently a Debian Developer/Maintainer builds locally and uploads
 the source package and one binary package.  Then the build daemons
 build binary packages for the other architectures.  Finally, all build
 packages become part of the archive.
