And hopefully other candidates are encouraged to learn from the
mistake too instead of giving up.

Andree, in case your reading here, don't take this the wrong way. Many
packages are uploaded broken, a few every day. Even seasoned DDs don't
seem to get Build-Depends right all the time or even know of
pbuilder. Or any of the other minor things.

The NM process should be a test as well as an education and you should
recieve the best education possible.
