That's passive voice ("should be checked"). I think it is unrealistic
to expect that anybody making changes will make them to PCbuild8 as
well if they are relevant; in many cases, no changes are made to the
Windows build process at all. Fortunately, Kristjan has volunteered to
maintain PCbuild8, and that's fine with me.
