That is wonderful news.

The fails from my last glibc build were:
Summary of test results:
The tst-audit2 failure is a segv. I thought that would be easy to fix but the plugin messes up
At the the moment, gcc-8 is in stage 3 and I'm trying to go through the test failures.
Regarding the kernel, the v4.13 series was pretty good on my rp3440. I've only run the v4.14.2 and
v4.14.3 for about 3 days. It seems the number of random segvs has increased again and I had one

Helge and I track the Debian buildd status here:
When we get time, we file packages bugs and some fixes, particularly for core tools.
Helge looks after the phantom, panama and parisc buildds. I look after mx3210.
We have accounts at wuiet.debian.org which allow us to give-back packages that fail due to random
build failures, etc.
We communicate offline frequently on kernel issues, etc.
Alan Modra has been very helpful in maintaining binutils on hppa.
