An alternative would be to keep all infrastructure up and running, but that is infeasible.
Or to adopt tools that help improve reliability. I'm not convinced that the buildbots really do that. A PQM-style approach, while more of a pain for developers because of the serialized landings, would definitely improve things, and there's not nearly as much infrastructure involved to keep humming for old releases. PQM isn't perfect, but I do believe it would help.
What is a "PQM-style approach" to releases?
