Due to the problem of uploading untested stuff, accidentally or not
accidentally I'd suggest to require uploads of all binary packages
together with the source and throw away the arch:any binary packages
(after passing NEW if necessary).
Also I'd be in favour of throwing away DD built arch:all debs as soon as
soon as building them on the buildds is implemented.
