        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.
