Yeah, I had an acute case of burnout syndrome. I tried to do far too
many things in parallel. I prescribed myself to focus on the most
important tasks like my new apartment and my job first. Heck, some of my
stuff is still in boxes! Relocating is sooo time consuming.

Our buildbot system has another issue. It's sending out far too many
mails with too many text. The s/n ratio is bad which makes it tedious to
study the reports. I'd prefer a summary once a day which lists the
failing build bots, platforms and tests. Add some links to extensive
test output, revisions and authors and you'd get a short report instead
of ten extensive reports.
