Hm...... the policy is changing to fast for me. Is there a place where
I can find all the changes?

=D I was already hyped about this cool changelog style. Oh, well....

The hook can be used as part of pbuilder in
/usr/share/pbuilder/examples there is a hook B91list-missing. I've
symlinked it into my hook.d dir I'm using in pbuilder. Alternativly we
can make it build depend in the rules so that it would be run even at
debuild's. But I haven't found a nice solution for that in CDBS. it
seems I must figure out which package will be build last and add the
target there, which is ugly =D.
