Bug#770016: further reasoning
* Holger Levsen <firstname.lastname@example.org>, 2014-11-18, 13:12:
this has also already been documented as best practice (to say at
least) in https://wiki.debian.org/buildd which says: "most buildds will
have no network access available.
I don't believe this is currently the case, but I'd love to proven
wrong. Of course, just because buildds let you do unwise things, doesn't
mean it's a good idea to do them. :-)
Your package build+test process must not attempt to use the network or
assume that any network interface is available."
