Default Restart automatic build

Hi,
automatic build of wengophone [1] on arm failed because of a GCC
internal compiler error.
Who should I ask to request a retry of the build?

Thanks,
Ludovico

However, if the reason it failed was an internal compiler error, then
unless the bug in the compiler has been fixed, such a rebuild will not
serve any purpose; the package will fail to build on exactly the same
place.

There are three things you can do now, in order of preference:
- Fix the bug in the compiler, or provide enough information for someone
to be able to do so (preferable, but not necessarily feasible),
- Try to find a workaround for the bug (e.g., sometimes changing the
optimization level may help, or you could build-depend a specific
compiler version on this architecture). Please coordinate this with
the architecture's porters, on debian-$arch@lists.debian.org
- If all else fails, ask the release managers to remove the arm package
from testing, so that the new version of your package can migrate.

Build failures can be due to lack of RAM, which especially happens on
arm buildds. The only way to get the package built is then to ask for a
rebuild, which hopefully will hit another box. I've already asked
Aurélien for several give-backs, following his own instructions.

No need to Cc me, thank you.

Thank you all for the answers!

Yes, you are right. Anyway it might have been caused by some hadrware
fault or race condition.

It the build is failing again (i.e. if the gcc bug is easily
reproducilbile) I will contact arm@buildd.debian.org for help in
getting information for reporting the bug.

Regards,
Ludovico
