I appreciate this has been the work flow but who covers the other hosts?

This is the situation I face when ever I consider a release. As a result with
major release changes and with my release manager hat on I am OK with the
current working set of tools until I know all the hosts are building.

A CI flow sounds great. Until then I only need posts to the builds list showing
the tools build and a link to here cause I have just cleared those emails out.

My request for testing is to any person on the list and not just you. My hope is
we can all share the work load.
