These are some ways we need buildbot to help us more.  IMO compiler
warnings should generate emails from buildbot.  We would need to
filter out a bunch, but it would be desirable to know about warnings
on different architectures.  Unfortunately, there are a ton of
warnings on OS X right now.

Buildbot runs "make testall" which does not run the tests in random order.

There's nothing to prevent buildbot from making debug builds, though
that is not currently done.  The builds I run on the x86 box every 12
hours *do* use debug builds (Misc/build.sh).  The results are here: 

I also recently switched the email to go to python-checkins, though
there haven't been any failures yet (unless they are sitting in a spam
queue).  There are some hangs (like right now):

Thread 1:

Lib/threading.py (204): wait
Lib/threading.py (543): join
Lib/threading.py (637): __exitfunc
Lib/atexit.py (25): _run_exitfuncs

Thread 2:

Lib/socket.py (170): accept
Lib/SocketServer.py (373): get_request
Lib/SocketServer.py (218): handle_request
Lib/test/test_socketserver.py (33): serve_a_few
Lib/test/test_socketserver.py (82): run
Lib/threading.py (445): __bootstrap

I've seen test_socketserver fail before, this could be due to running
2 tests simultaneously.
