     + a bad week: master was broken
       + many builds re-triggered due to broken master
       + very high number of builds, causing some long waits.
       + down to three hours now.
     + Macs can now keep up quite well
       + most wait for Windows or Linux builds.
     + Norbert’s Dallas Macs were not reachable over the weekend.
       + but coming back now.
     + next: better distribute loads on Linux machines
       + move tinderbox builds off to slower boxes perhaps.
     + disabled tombstone builds – so all platforms build immediately.
     + is there some way of over-provisioning so fix it next time ? (Thorsten)
       + when CI fails, people push direct, master breaks more.
       + people were pushing patch-series: multiple patches (Cloph)
          + the first one fails; re-basing them, then all fail etc.
          + could make this smarter in terms of queueing.
       + temporary AWS workers ? (Thorsten)
          + killing builds helps too.
AI:  + come up with a plan for this in future (Christian)
     + we try to be friendly and not revert (Miklos)
          + perhaps we should do that more so when there is a big blockage.
          + thanks to Michael Stahl for fixing the UITest issue.

* Budgeting (Thorsten)
    + collecting other wish-lists – cross-check with GSoC ideas
