Technical Details about the build system

The build system was rewritten in Python in 2014. It is under version control at git+ssh://git.mit.edu/git/athena/build-system.git

Its primary purpose is to enforce our workflow. The actual building is done by standard Debian tools like sbuild, and such tools can be used to build packages in an emergency should the build system fail in some way.
