       buildd - package autobuilder daemon




       This  man  page documents the packaged version of buildd.  This version
       is  maintained  by  the  buildd-tools  project  developers  on   Alioth

       There  is  also a version maintained by Ryan Murray which is adapted to
       build daemon needs, with similar functionality.  This version should be
       equally  capable  of  working  in  a  buildd setup, but has a number of
       enhancements aimed at making it suitable for use by end-users.


       buildd is a daemon used to automatically  build  Debian  packages  from
       source.   wanna-build  is used to find and claim packages for building,
       while sbuild is used  to  build  the  packages.   The  helper  programs
       buildd-mail,  buildd-uploader  and  buildd-watcher  are used to perform
       various housekeeping tasks to keep the system running.


              Configuration, maintained by the system administrator.  This may
              be used to override the defaults.

              User-specific configuration.
