Is this really needed? I mean, the autobuilders are already showing us
when a problem occurs, and then we fairly quickly see when it no longer
Of course, if someone wants to set up a Jenkins that does this, I have
no problem changing the autobuild.buildroot.org thing to forward broken
configurations to some Jenkins instance. But I personally don't think
it's really worth the effort.
