I notice that the Rudbek and Laru tests are running several times a day (thx
guys). This makes it much faster to see VC results -- very helpful for
someone like me that is gcc centric. Seems like by providing a smaller number
of compilers they can cycle faster than some of the bigger testing farms.
I'm hoping I'll get a chance to setup a Linux machine here that can run some
'release mode' gcc tests for the 1.33 release push. It will be a week or so
before I get time to try it though...
