As many of you have noticed, Victor Huesca made numerous contributions
to the tooling of Buildroot in recent months. Victor was doing an
internship at Bootlin from mid-May to end of August, and this
internship was entirely focused on contributing to Buildroot.

His work was mainly on three areas:

 - Improving the notifications sent to Buildroot developers about the
   availability of new upstream versions of the packages they maintain

 - Improving the notifications to also include defconfig build failures
   and runtime tests failures

 - Improving the search capabilities on autobuild.buildroot.org,
   especially to allow searching by configuration symbols.

We have summarized his contribution in these areas in a blog post at:


I personally found Victor's work to be very useful and already showing
nice benefits, and I hope the Buildroot community will also find it

Thanks a lot Victor for your contribution!
