That'd be great! Ratt is a tool written by Michael that rebuilds the reverse dependencies of a package, to check for breakage. But it currently lacks support for transitive dependencies, which IMO severely limits its usefulness. What I had in mind was maybe to build a upload queue, which would be a directory in some server, where some cronjob or something will trigger a ratt run and based on that decide to discard the package or reupload to the official incoming queue using dput or something similar. -- Martín Ferrari (Tincho) _______________________________________________ Pkg-go-maintainers mailing list Pkgfirstname.lastname@example.org http://lists.alioth.debian.org/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/pkg-go-maintainers
