I intend to have the TDF tb box build a daily 'for bibisect' build
using a common config
once a day but at different time of the day...
They will upload their install-dir (tar.gz) in a staging area in tdf infra
and these will be stitched together later...
since they will not upload at the same speed and shit can happen... it
is safer to stage first... so that the stitching can be tweaked.
it is easier to script rebuilding a bibisect in part of in full using
the tar.gz of the build rather than /insert/delete/move some commit
after the fact

This will also allow.. in case a particular patch made the thing
unbuildable for a while... to retrospectively re-build that section of
the history using a 'patched' version at each step to avoid the the
bug the prevented the build to start with...
I have done this on master covering the 4-2 dev period... where some
patches broke the mac build for weeks at the time (on 10.6). the fixes
where often trivial so a simple git check-out + fix of a single file
was enough to still build... hence avoiding a 500+ commit range
without builds...
