+1 I think anything that is actually stable should be in that category.

+1 The bot was very stable and fast for some time but has been unstable
for at least a year.

Well, I think in this case it's the gcc AIX maintainer running it, so...

I think we should have a policy to stop reporting issues on unstable
bots unless someone has a concrete fix OR the bot maintainers are
known to fix issues fast (but that does not seem to be the case).
