Mandating build-arch and build-indep would be a good thing, IMHO. It's not the buildd software that can change this though--the actual sticking point is dpkg-buildpackage, which is used by sbuild. sbuild is actually perfectly capable of installing Build-Depends-Indep and removing Build-Conflicts-Indep when invoked with the -A (build arch-all) option, but there are no buildds building arch-indep packages yet. If we ever throw away uploaded binaries and build everything on buildds, this would then be useful. Regards, Roger -- .''`.
