Re: Bug#629385: Request for TC to rule on a course of action for supporting build-arch

Hearing no objections, I call for a TC vote on the following ballot:

A. dpkg-buildpackage, when doing a binary-only build (-B), should probe
   the package with "make -qn" to see if the build-arch target appears to
   be implemented.  If so, it should use "debian/rules build-arch" to
   build the package instead of "debian/rules build".  If it detects via
   "make -qn" that the target is missing, it should output a warning
   asking the packager to implement the required targets, and then fall
   back to using "debian/rules build".

   The fallback to "debian/rules build" and the "make -qn" auto-detection
   are temporary to ease the transition but should be dropped at some
   point (wheezy+1, or wheezy+2).

   Debian Policy should be updated to make build-arch and build-indep
   mandatory targets.

B. Further discussion
