[Build-common-hackers] Bug#627968: Fw: Bug#627968: Commenting the Package stanza in the control file

  Even if there is a proper way to avoid building a package, my understanding of 

cdbs documentation is that setting DEB_*PACKAGES variables should have a
similar effect.
  It could be that I don't understand cdbs's documentation.
If I do understand the documentation correctly, why it didn't work for me?  
Doesn't the fact that it didn't work for me implies there is a bug?  Either a 
bug in
the code, or in the documentation.

As far as understand this bugreport, Laurent Bigonville is correct: 
the proper way to avoid building a package is to remove it from the 
control file.

That is general to Debian packaging, not specific to CDBS.

I hereby close this bugreport as a non-bug.

Kind regards,

- Jonas
