w.d.o/devel/website/using-cvs points you to
(I wonder why that is not on the website instead of in p.d.o). Basicly mail 
webmaster@debian.org (Matt Krai and Josip Rodin) and Cc: joey@debian.org.

Doesn't work (wget)=:
--16:03:35--  http://db.debian.org/debian-admin/wanna-build_2004.09.06.deb
16:09:29 ERROR 404: Not Found.

Actually it's 

However the changelog says:

wanna-build (2004.09.06) unstable; urgency=high

  * Initial non-release. [*DO NOT USE THESE DEBS*]

The sources are _really_ different from those found in the m68k CVS
(from diffstat:  47 files changed, 764 insertions(+), 3505 deletions(-))

They are somewhat different (configuration files are located in different
places) and Roger Leigh's version does provide manual pages for all of the
buildd commands (wanna-build, wanna-build-mail, wanna-build-statistics,
wanna-build-update...). Also, the version at db.debian.org provides some 
functionality that is missing in Roger's (like a 'clean-db' call to 
wanna-build). However, I'm not sure if the security fix that was recently 
introduced was included in those packages... It looks like it was not, is 
this it:

-               if (!/^(\S+)\s*(\(\s*(>>|>=)\s*(\S+)\s*\))?\s*$/) {
+               if (!/^(\S+)\s*(\(\s*([<=>]+)\s*(\S+)\s*\))?\s*$/) {
                        return 0 if $verify;
-                       warn( "parse_deplist: bad dependency $_\n" );
+                       logger( "parse_deplist: bad dependency $_\n" );

These forks are really messy :-(
