I think you could run your own buildfarm member and add whatever "steps" you wanted (we have one building JDBC). I'm not sure that we want that though -- it'd start polluting the greenness of our buildfarm with failures from code outside of our control. I mean, if the third party code fails to compile, surely it's the third party devs that care. I fail to see why this is such a big deal. -- Álvaro Herrera <alvhe...@commandprompt.com> The PostgreSQL Company - Command Prompt, Inc.
