  * Remove --parallel from dh to fix build on i386 buildd.

 -- Leopold Palomo-Avellaneda <>  Tue, 02 Dec 2014 08:29:43 

My guess is that happened because of the build failure on 2014-11-30 in:

Note how the builds on i386 take ~5 hours, while on amd64 they take ~1h,
because of the parallel builds. For e.g. mipsel it's at 22h or 1d15h vs.
8h on mips64el.

Why was this disabled? Do the builds run out of memory often? It'd be good
to re-enable this, the speedup is huge and it would avoid taking one buildd
for a day and a half on some architectures.
