Can someone tell me why Windows trunk builds are so sporadic? It's been over 2 weeks since the last one (Apr 7). A lot of fixes have been recently made to mail-news that I'm anxious to confirm fixed but can't without a new build. I see Mac builds aren't very regular either. What's the scoop?

Infrastructure. Its on the last legs. You patch it here and it breaks there... Mozilla also never updated the SeaMonkey build servers to 2008 R2 so only one loaner pc is doing the builds. Same with OSX. Only two builders left.

Should sort itself out over the next year for better or worse. Worse if we are unable to install our own infrastructure due to lack of manpower and funding.

Well that kinda sux. I do hope the sorting out is better than worse. I can't code but I can donate to the cause, though not enough to fix what ails it. I guess I just have to continue being patient and cross my fingers SM isn't abandoned altogether.
