Well it was John, and now it is Julian. I meant boss as in leader of
distro team rather than management chain.

Both have expressed the wish to me that buildhost builds cutting edge
stuff so we can use that as early warning of potential problems before
we stabilise. This of course means that some builds fail, or produce
packages that eat your phone and other stuff.

I use the buildhost build report every morning to indicate areas where
we are having issues and try and get fixes in ASAP.
