[maemo-developers] Autobuilder repository priority ?

I have a small issue with the autobuilder. The whole thing started out by 
having a package that compiled nice in the SDK but not in the autobuilder due 
to a versioning mismatch (in my case python-dbus, but it's a generic problem 
as you'll see). After some snooping around, I realized the problem was that 
the SDK had 0.83.0-1maemo1 in fremantle/tools/free (and that's what got used 
when compiling in the SDK), however, the autobuilder insists on using 
0.83.0-1maemo3 from fremantle/free (-devel). The problem is IMHO that 
the repository priorities seem to be wrong. The autobuilder should be using 
the highest version in the TOP PRIORITY repository that satisfies a dependency 
to avoid breakage because of unstable stuff in -devel and because otherwise a 
package can't be promoted without dragging other folks' packages with them. 
Thoughts ?
