proj/en/releng is old as hell and doesn't even mention stage generation.
How does a developer know when the stage generation is broken? Is
there a dashboard? At work we have a guy who is basically a build cop
and checks our build dashboard once a day or so and if it is broken he
goes and finds the guy who broke it and punches him in the face until
he fixes it. I imagine we do not have staff for this (and no one has
invented punching over the internet.)
I am curious how often stage builds fail (how long can they be broken
until we actually care?)
