Release Requirement for Debian GNU/Linux 2.1
Make it auto-compileable
This has been proposed by Martin Mitchell and elaborated by Lars Wirzenius.
Make as much as possible automatically compilable by dbuild, debbuild, or a similar script, assuming a rich build environment (given that we haven't got source dependencies yet). This would benefit porting efforts. (We're very close to there. I can set up a system to run dbuild automatically on a slink mirror every night, for i386.)
Lalo Martins: Source dependencies may be in the .dsc only, no need to propagate them to the .deb (and consequently to Packages and status files).
