Well, I also think a build in dep-order would be better. But nobody
showed up with a *concrete* plan how to do it --  there were only rough
ideas but nobody worked out the details in time.

And before we don't do a mass build I prefer that we do it this way.

Most people attending to the meetings suggested a
"rebuild-by-maintainer" solution. That was done then.

RH uses a the alphabetical order by the package name afaik -- I don't
see any benefit from that ;-)
