Agree - And lack of testing before stuff gets checked in. The deeper
issue is that we don't do releases I guess, so there's a tension
between doing development, and having something stable for actual use.

I have gotten a login to the gcc cluster, and have plans to setup a
buildbot instance to do regression tests on buildroot.

Bernard's git tree is a fork of the svn repo from some time
ago. There's no official sync, but he sometimes cherrypicks commits
from svn, and I sometimes do the same from his tree.

It's a pity, but has historical reasons.
