Hi Don,

No offense intended anywhere, but I have the impression documentation
and/or communication can be improved somewhere. I hope this discussion
is leading to that.

https://www.debian.org/Bugs/server-control. So how does one do that and
where is it documented?

I have looked at the build logs, yes. I agree with you. Fixing brltty
wasn't my point though.
