The CPython builds are updated once a day. You can also see that from the 
build history of those jobs.

I prefer keeping the CPython build rates low to avoid unnecessary builds. 
CPython tends to have a much higher churn rate than Cython, simply due to 
the size of the code base and the number of people working on it.

Since we only build once in 24h, it happens from time to time that the 
build jobs pick up a broken revision for a day or two, but it rarely takes 
longer than that to fix on their side, at least for something as obvious as 
a crash in the test suite.
