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 <> 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?
