I agree that there is no point of having the build system if most of
packages are in red. Anyway, about this red status, this is something
that each build-slave maintainer should keep track of.
Other problem was that because the "dbus connection problem" we needed
to remove RHEL5 as a build slave, as this machine is also the
master. So right now there are just one stable build-slave (thanks to
Frederic). Several ideas were proposed, but no one was implemented
yet. My favourite is a virtual machine, but this is something that it
is required to be implemented by the sys-admin group (IMHO).
In the same way, when this RHEL5 build-slave was running, it was not
clear who should review the builds. I randomly checked that, but
pragmatically was not the best, as I can't install new packages on
that machine (ie , I just modify the slave and master
Sometimes I feel that the review of the builds on the machine provided
by GNOME should be reviewed by GNOME sysadmin, but not sure
