I can't see how this is related to the topic, sorry. Packages are
built under scratchbox, in isolated environment and that environment
has nothing to do with the version of Debian on garage. We even don't
have scratchbox installed there.

Agree about time to upgrade, but it's usually not that easy to upgrade
several years old actively used system. May be that's the reason why
it's still on etch.
