Microsoft track Outcome HEAD. Given the 24 hour lag from when I push a
commit which fails on MSVC, I would assume they have it on a nightly

Personally speaking, I just love this arrangement. I no longer need to
code around MSVC. I just push the code which won't compile, and
Microsoft fix MSVC for me. Wonderful.
