you are correct, the point is the "quick", what i originally suggested
as 2) is to get use to "build, test and git push only (no fpm upload)".
this would still allow manual upload, when it's really necessary

that's a valid point

hm in fact if one is really lazy, then it's already possible to just
push and don't test a pkg at all (fortunatelly nobody does this)

it's not without bugs, but the chroot is cleaned before each build
that's for sure :)

okay, how long should syncd wait for fpms from the devels before it
offers a pkg to build for the client daemons? i think we never upload
big fpms from slow connections, so.. 10 minutes? can we safely assume
that it will not be uploaded manually if there is no fpm on the server
10 mins after the push?
[ cl'ing does not matter, syncd would stat() the fpms, would not check
the fdb - so if the load is high and say you upload the fpm in 5 mins
(usually we do in 1 min imho), and the cl takes 20 mins, that's not a
