That looks like it predates the move to having proper test summaries,
instead relying on test failures producing errors from make and using make
-k check (so would only work now with make -k check
I suppose it would be nice to get the web interface to the logs showing
test failures in some way ("commit X caused test Y to go from PASS to

Cross-compilation tests that glibc and the tests at least build for
different configurations would be useful as well - such a test would, for
example, be able to run the ABI tests and so catch regressions there.
(The different ABIs at <https://sourceware.org/glibc/wiki/ABIList> provide
some indication of relevant configurations, although sometimes non-ABI
differences can make more difference to what sources get built than ABI
I don't know what the machine resources available are - would adding such
tests (or QEMU-based more complete cross-compilation tests) require
providing machine resources to run the slaves or just doing the scripting
to do the builds?
