where the seconds depends on the first being available and so on,
that it doesn't take weeks to get them all build. We would have
to wait at least a dinstall before the next one could be build,
assuming sometimes has the time to sign the package between
It basicly just avoids a whole lot of delays.
Unfortunately, it seems also to add quite some delays in the self-compiling case. :-/ Each time a buildd finishes, that buildd's Packages file gets updated due to the completed binary upload and all other buildds go back into the BD-Uninstallable state. (I assume this also means the package loses its place in line on the busy buildd queues)
I wonder if the same rules applied to the unstable package list (don't include the all for a package whose any is not done) could be applied also to the buildd's Packages?
