How about having a after-push git-hook in the master branch in our
git.fdi/git/libreoffice/* git repos that generate the list of
that was you should be able to almost-completely bisect.
sure in some cases the fact that 2 commit in two git are
interdependent would throw off the bisection. but that is not that
Another problem would be merge of feature branches, which would be
counted as just one bisect step for the whole branch.... (but that is
true even with the tinderbuild based solution)
