In general, I think the build farm is targeted at the developers of
Samba, rather than the machine maintainers. I think that notifying the
maintainer of the machine when Samba/rsync/ppp/distcc/ccache breaks is
probably not going to be helpful to the maintainers. (In fact, we try to
make it so that maintaining a host is much of a "set it up and forget
about it" type of responsibility.).
