Please update launchpad-buildd

Asked by Gianfranco Costamagna

AFAICS launchpad-buildd is based on ubuntu 8.04 which will reach EOL on 2013.

Do you plan to update it?

and second question, how the update will give benefits to our builds?

I mean I have a bug in applying a patch when building from automatic recipes, and I have not this bug when building and "dput"ting the file manually...
Maybe with an update this bug will be fixed, but I don't know how an update will affect the builds because AFAIK everything is built in a chroot environment, so maybe just a chroot update is needed

This is being done by migrating the PPA builders to an OpenStack-based system, which should hopefully also improve on some of our current reliability problems; but this is a fairly substantial project and it's taking a while.

Can you help with this problem?
