Package: python-mini-buildd Version: 1.0.36~bpo9+1 The Change daemon page states about the Sbuild jobs option: "Degree of parallelism per build (via sbuild's '--jobs' option)." but the option is only passed via the DEB_BUILD_OPTIONS variable, not --jobs, meaning that no -j option will be added to the dpkg-buildpackage command line nor MAKEFLAGS. Packages using dh with --parallel or compat >= 10 will automatically use the parallel option in DEB_BUILD_OPTIONS, but not other packages that don't parse DEB_BUILD_OPTIONS by hand.
Perhaps it's actually not desirable to always set -j in MAKEFLAGS but in that case the documentation should be changed to match reality. Thanks, -- Magnus Holmgren Debian Developer
