As I understand we have two options for arch INdependent packages. Either
using Aaron's x86_64 build machine, or using the scripts ^^ from François.
For arch dependent packages however we only can rely on Aaron's build
machine. Now the big question is how reliable is the output for these
packages, so the overall quality of the packages doesn't drop. How many
people actually do use it, and do they find the output to be reliable ?
