I perfectly understand, that's also why I haven't done this yet. Also, getting 
the logs out (automatically) is planned, just that there are cases where this 
doesn't work / ain't straight forward - writing logs reqires some things, and 
getting them out, some others. (either a valid filesystem or ssh in..) - but 
many cases are about problems before such things are possible...

but I also haven't spend any time on this aspect of jenkins.d.n since a long 
time - but I probably will soonish - and I will have the log problem in mind!

I'm not sure whether this is directed at me (?), but I don't think you are a 
pain at all, nor elitist! You're definitly other things though ;-D Really, I 
much appreciate your dedication to details and to getting things right! 
Without *your* work in the last few years, d-i would not be as great as it is 
today!

That said, I also appreciate giving people a chance to start (and be!) 
imperfect! ;-)

So I'll try to file "anything" I see as bugs now. Please feel free to close as 
"too crappy"..! :) I'd hope they should be at least good for tracking 
problems, so reassign to qa.debian.org whenever...!


cheers,
	Holger
