Thanks. I'm also quite proud of the graph for sh4, managed to get
over 2500 packages to build on the buildds and I am closing up to

Good idea, but I think we should rather wait until we have gotten above
9000 or even 10.000 built packages. There are still many packages that

A good starter is too look at the packages in Failed state as these are
packages that fail to build from source reproducibly.
