This can't happen anymore.

All packages are now built at once. Previously the mythtv packages were
built independantly of the mythplugins one etc..

It's now one build package building mythtv, the plugins and the themes.

The only problem I could think of is related to architecture independant
packages and you update at a precise moment: but the odds are rather low.

When I was building my own package, the build script were checking on those
so it couldn't happen, if mythtv libmyth changed, it would force a rebuild
of mythplugins etc..

I now use fr.autobuilds.mythbuntu.org . This is hosted on my server, same
machine running www.avenard.org ; it has a gigabit internet connection in a
good data centre.

I will continue to make nvidia and mplayer packages. But for mythtv, you are
better off using mythbuntu mirrors.

The mythbuntu decided yesterday to support new mythtv packages on the LTS
release until a new LTS version comes + 6 months. This was the key factor
making me decide to not bother building my own packages for the time being.
I may build some in the "testing" repo in the future if I decide to backport
some trunk features in the fixes branch but unofficially.
