Sure it proves that _I_ built it, but it doesn't prove that it will
build on the buildds.
Hence, my point that in real terms neither debs nor sbuild logs prove anything.
See the case about the minimal expected kernel.

I did built in sbuild, but not a VM. Is there pbuilder/sbuild backed
by qemu/kvm available anywhere to make that easier to do?

Ok, I will look at it.

What's this:
Kernel: Linux 3.2.0-0.bpo.3-octeon

Why is distribution (experimental) building on an out of date backported kernel?

Also MIPS is ahead of x86_64 =)))))
