We've been giving your script a try and made some updates.  So I went
ahead and created a (github)fork (should have a few updates checked in
I fixed a couple items that may have been bugs (or possibly just how I
used the script).  I current have been running into an issue where
after git updates are detected, previously built pkgs try to rebuild
without doing a clean.  I see where the conditional is that should be
executing the clean but haven't tracked down why I'm not hitting that
path yet.
I also noticed that once the script processes all jobs it gets into a
loop, I added a fix for that that prevents running the jobs unless
there are still jobs to execute in the job list.

I noticed there isn't a good way to restart the script after you stop
it, is my understanding correct?  I (temporarily) added a cleanup
sequence before the mainloop executes to remove history and each cfgs
build before proceeding.

I think there might be a bug with detecting when a package fails to
build, I'll see if I can resolve this and let you know.  I haven't had
a package actually error yet, but have had some that never built
because of host dependency error or download error

I was wondering what your thoughts were for the report?  I'm guessing
what's currently committed was the start of something based on this
thread of discussion.  I could see gathering a list of package err,
git id, and list to build output (similarly to the autobuilder
