It might help if you knew how wanna-build and buildd worked.
Since experimental building requires a few patches to sbuild, it doesn't
make much sense to experimental autobuilding on hosts that also do
unstable autobuilding. It might make sense to make that second host a
d.o machine, too, but it doesn't matter all that much IMO.
Since wanna-build requires a separate database for each and every
distribution it tracks, (e.g., wanna-build.d.o has a database for
oldstable, oldstable-security, stable, stable-security, testing, and
unstable for each architecture it tracks) it doesn't matter much whether
you run it on buildd.d.o or on another host -- you need a second
<Lo-lan-do> Home is where you have to wash the dishes.
