Excellent! It looks like those builders are doing a pretty incremental build
(the last build didn't actually do anything since none of the files were
changed).. are you doing a full from-scratch build too?

That'll work. I won't be able to get to anything until next week (I've got a
CodeCon presentation to deliver on Saturday) but I'd be happy to take a look
at them then. Posting them on the mailing list (maybe split out by functional
group) will also make them easier to discuss.

If I haven't committed them within a few weeks, also feel free to add them to
the sf.net bugtracker (I think it has a category for 'patches'). That will
make them stare me in the face until I do something about them.

Thank you! When you're happy with how it's running for you, would you mind if
we put a link to your instance on the buildbot web page?
