Hi Frederic et al.,

After a couple of months of furious patching and bug filing, we've reached 
133/200 modules in gnome-suites-2.28 building and installing successfully, 
which meets the threshold you've described. Thus we're hoping to have the 
OpenSol machine included in the buildbot listing.

I notice that is still on 2.26; is this likely to be 
changed? We've been targetting 2.28 on the basis that we're able to get 
bugs fixed in modules for this branch.

We might even get a FreeBSD-based machine going in the next few months
