I'm waiting for your reasoning about making the meta packages

When building for unstable, we check the list of packages in testing

Sure.  I completely understand and agree with the rationale.  That's
why my second patch added the doc I feel necessary (as minimum) to

As for the all/any issue, the set of packages present on a given
architecture, so we need to adjust the package list to match each
architecture.  This is why the package is autobuild.

Both of these issues might no longer be required, as we switched to
using tasksel tasks that do not have hard dependencies, and all the
meta packages at most recommend (and no longer depend) on packages.
But until we can check that the unstable-testing propacation code
ignore recommends, I believe it is best to keep it the way it is.

OK.  So I will change the rules file to enable binary-arch build.
I admit I have not thought about this before.

Kind regards and thanks for the clarification
