As discussed explicitly in the call: I have no time at all for that, you are
free to volunteer.

Right now, I plan to do the alpha1 bibisect build to keep Robinsons backs free
for the Bugzilla migration. Robinson will then take over for the beta/branchoff
builds of bibisect, and if you think its worth setting up a baseline chroot for
the bibisects then, that might be an option (possibly redoing the stuff I build
on that baseline).

Then again, as per:


there are currently _no_ reports of recent build being not universal.

Michael Stahl once ranted about the old LibreOffice 3.5 build as they linked
against a system libjpeg, but that was never affected the build after that. If
anyone is volunteering to rebuild LibreOffice 3.5 without libjpeg, you are
invited as Michael never did that[1]. ;)

    then, needing hotpatching like this:
