There is already some one with buildd (is that right?) doing auto
compiles, however not every package compiles and requires manual attempts
to find out the problems AFAIK. Cristopher I believe is doing this, and
stated he would post a list of the failed auto builds. I was interested in
seeing this to offer to help with buidling and sending patches to the
maintainers to fix our compile problems.
BTW, yes 18.104.22.168 is the latest slink. I just noticed our problem is the
convergence of slink binary-sparc packages and potato binary-all packages
(dpkg-dev is 1.4.1 in potato/main/binary-sparc/base). This should really
be resolved before we can really hope to make a freeze, either get
the sparc distribution frozen or compile for potato instead.
I wont be posting dpkg 1.4.1 then.
