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 

Perhaps it's actually not desirable to always set -j in MAKEFLAGS but in that 
case the documentation should be changed to match reality.
