require source packages for arch:all binary packages

Native architecture ARCH

Host architecture arch. Defaults to native architecture.

Comma-separated foreign architectures in addition to native and host architectures.

By default, installing any binary package requires the coinstallation set of all

this requirement.

botch-clean-repository --deb-native-arch=amd64 packages sources > packages-clean
botch-bin2src --deb-native-arch=amd64 packages-clean sources > sources-clean
