No, sorry, it tells you what the admins are doing with the build logs.
I'm sure there's less of it nowadays than there used to be, but there's
always been a certain amount of handholding in the buildd system
configuration, et cetera.

I'm not saying that this all needs to be publicly logged.  I don't give
a rat's ass whether it is or not.  But please don't stand there saying
that the process is completely transparent.
