And now we get into a slightly twitchy area...  These error messages
can be quite long and annoying, far too detailed for the likes of the
-current mailing list, which is why I've been sending them only to an
opt-in alias called "[EMAIL PROTECTED]" which sends a
success/failure summary like yours and include the last 100 lines of
failure output for debugging.  It also does this for both the RELENG_4
branch and -current.

That said, I've also done a singularly bad job of actually letting
people know that build-reports even exists so I wouldn't expect you or
anyone else (except maybe Bill Paul) to have known about it.  It's
just an alias on hub.freebsd.org right now and not a real
majordomo-managed mailing list, so I wasn't inclined to take on the
workload of managing the alias.  It does at least log its results to
the build-reports mail archive so anyone looking in /home/mail/build-reports
on hub can also spy on the current status of both active branches.

If there's a real interest in this, then this should obviously be created
as a real mailing list and probably split into build-reports-stable and
build-reports-current for people who only want one or the other.
