given that a full debug build (which is what would make sense for a
newbie) is 30 GB, let me take this opportunity to question Bjoern's
sanity and/or request a don't-drink-and-post policy.

also, a build will get outdated pretty soon anyway... what would be the
benefit of a 2 month old build today with 4000 extra commits on master?
