[Ros-release] how to troubleshoot broken debs?

For the old style debs it's unfortunately cumbersome.  What you need to do
is identify the rosdistro, distro, arch and find that job on
build.willowgarage.com.  Ala
http://build.willowgarage.com/job/debbuild-build-debs-fuerte-precise-i386/ The
job is parameterized.  It's either run with a specific stack name or ALL as
a parameter.  You want to find the most recent ALL job that failed.  To
find the parameter you need to click on a specific job instance: for
example 470
then click on the parameters button to show the parameters.  It shows ALL.
 Then click on the [raw] button for the console output and find where it
started building your package. ( A shortcut to finding the ALL builds is
usually that they are red, when individual releases ususally are blue.  )

If it's a compile failure you can look for [FAIL] but if it's a packaging
issues unfortunately you need to search for the name of the stack.
