For instance: http://lists.debian.org/debian-devel/2006/07/msg00544.html

You say people have argued against source-only uploads, but I think
source-only is actually not what we are talking about. The subject
line says: "recompile...".

Whether or not requiring binary packages in the upload as a QA sort
of measure is a good thing is a tangential debate.

I would like to know why we can't just discard those binaries and
rebuild them on trusted machines. Then we get the best of all

(Arguably I failed to express myself properly in the last post).

Please do not send copies of list mail to me; I read the list!
