thanks, I got the picture much better now.

following the links though, I came across ,
which is marked as "implemented", but from the wiki update, it seems not
to be (i.e. if you have to enable a repository and install new packages,
then you don't have the automated problem reports as you want).

can that spec be tweaked a little to ask for out-of-the-box installation
of all debug symbols on edgy+1? would that be feasible?

thanks, thanks and thanks :)
