I won't be at UDS, so if this is of interest to someone, I would really like
it if someone who is would take the ball and run with it.
Currently build sequence on the buildds is determined (primarily) by a
combination of pocket and component:
In my opinion, one of the major reasons to prioritize builds is to help keep
ISOs buildable. During non-freeze periods it is not at all rare for flavors
built out of Universe to go days without a successful image build on some
architectures due to archive skew.
I think we should change the scoring model in Launchpad (yes, this would be an
LP change, but I think it should be driven by Ubuntu) to include a
seeded/unseeded element as well. This would give us more images available for
testing on a regular basis without having to get special respins.
This could either be done by dropping the current component based score
changes and substituting a seeded/unseeded differential or by adding an
additional score differential for seeded-in-ubuntu packages on top of the
