There is a "hole" in dak that allows uploading a source that has
arch:all and arch:any with only source+all. This is not intentional,
but until now there hasn't been a real need to "fix" this.
There are some developers already "using" this hole to upload in a
source+all way, having the rest of the packages build on buildds.
This is not entirely the most favored thing to do, for various reasons
(including bypassing things like lintian checks and not actually showing
the stuff builds), but is very very low on our todo to fix. For the
simple reason that the packages uploaded this way simply do not appear
on any radar. Ie. they are maintained well. No (bad) lintian problem and
even more important: No build failures, the buildd do not get useless
work from them.
Provided this will be true for the kernel packages too (ie. they are
build elsewhere first and its known to work and they don't bypass lintian
checks that would otherwise do a reject on a sourceful upload) then it
is acceptable for the kernel team to upload only the architecture
independent packages, having the rest build on the autobuilders.
