Hi everyone! Sadly this seems to keep failing :-(

Is there another way we can try to fix this? Like, for example, being able to 
get into the sbuild run when it fails?

Also, JFTR, we have another upload pending that fixes a CVE and a RC bug, but 
as we couldn't get -4 in wheezy, we can not upload it (or we could ask the RT 
if they would accept to let in wheezy more changes in a single transition).

Kinds regards, Lisandro.

persists in trying to adapt the world to himself.  Therefore all
progress depends on the unreasonable man.
