Package: src:vdirsyncer
Version: 0.11.3-1

Dear maintainer:

I tried to build this package in stretch with "dpkg-buildpackage -A"
(which is what the "Arch: all" autobuilder would do to build it)
but it failed:

 debian/rules build-indep
dh build-indep --with python3,sphinxdoc --buildsystem=pybuild
   dh_testdir -i -O--buildsystem=pybuild
   dh_update_autotools_config -i -O--buildsystem=pybuild
   dh_auto_configure -i -O--buildsystem=pybuild

E: Build killed with signal TERM after 60 minutes of inactivity

The failure does not seem related to using "dpkg-buildpackage -A" at all.
It happens because I was using eatmydata in the stretch chroot
(disabling eatmydata makes the build to work ok).

It would be really nice if this package could be built with eatmydata,
it saves a lot of disk I/O and makes the build to run much faster.

To reproduce, please try building with sbuild and a 
file /etc/schroot/chroot.d/stretch like this:
