Would it be possible to include the build logs for the "good" builds. Even when my builds are successful, there are generally a lot of scary looking messages in them. It would be nice to be able to compare them to a build that one of the developers was satisfied with.

Yes, it's possible. People who report build and test results need to be reminded of this. I have added a reminder in the build/test wiki page for Sage 4.5.3.

How about putting the date/time at the very beginning and very end of each log -- so it's easy to get an idea of the build time on various machines.

That's a good idea. I have implemented that in my custom build script. The relevant code block is:

before="$(date +%s)" make after="$(date +%s)"
elapsed_seconds="$(expr$after - $before)" echo Elapsed time:$(date -d "1970-01-01 $elapsed_seconds sec" +%H:%M:%S) > install.log  There are a number of Fedora 12 machines (skynet?) -- I'm curious if these are going to be upgraded when Fedora 12 reaches "end of life" (in November?) We, even William Stein, don't have control over the SkyNet build farm, nor do we have control over the GCC Compile Farm. Both are not owned by the Sage project.
