Only because you are not thinking it though. When I builds on
my machine, it is something I am testing. Any random irregularities
in the build system would be uncovered in my tests. A random rogue
buildd does not have that -- some guys is building a lot of packages
they can't test; and uploading them from a machine where we do not
know anything bout the build mechanism.
Either I build and test _my_ packages on _my_ machine, and
sign 'em; or I build on a DSA controlled machine -- which is
different from me getting a whole slew of packages abd building and
uploading them from my box.
He who foresees calamities suffers them twice over.
