Occasionally, we may not want to build a package for certain releases or suites, either because we don't need it, or it doesn't make sense.

There are two control file fields we use for this:

  • X-Debathena-Build-For - A space-separated list of codenames (e.g. trusty, precise). The package will ONLY be built for those releases and no others.
  • X-Debathena-No-Build - A space-separated list of codenames that the package will NOT be built for.

It is not a syntax error to have both fields, but it's entirely pointless.
