A recuring pattern in the past two weeks has been the need to resolve a situation where the build machines and the associated respositories could not be used because either:
- the reprepro repository rejected one of the packages found in a build machine because of a checksum error, i.e. because it contained the same version of the package with a different checksum
- the packaging-farm installed on the build machine claimed it had no work to do
- packages were not manually submitted to the build machine
In the following each source of confusion is analyzed and clarified.
