Hi,


Because of the failing cdbs package for Ubuntu (and Debian) I've spoken to the maintainer of cdbs which is also the maintainer of the cdbs Debian package.

He sees the situation as follows:

Debian Policy §4.9.1 says: It is up to the package maintainer to decide whether the package build times are long enough and the package build system is robust enough to make supporting parallel builds worthwhile.

"The cdbs package did *not* explicitly enable support for parallel builds, that makes the parallel building by OBS a violation of the Debian Policy in this case."


If you do not agree and think this is a bug in cdbs, please explain that clearly to me, then I will file a bugreport to the package. Otherwise please chan*g*e the build behavior of OBS for Ubuntu / Debian packages.

Thank in advance,

~P
