It's really a bug fix, we're trying to build Factory in the
build service, the baselibs creating was one missing part and
is now also done.

I would like you to think about how we can improve on this.

- spend time in the wiki, documenting things there, instead of hanging
around on IRC and repeating it again and again there
- documenting your work and announcing it properly

Darix is actually documenting it. It's not a build service, but
an autobuild issue.

Try to not only think about this specific issue. Let's say I was using
it as an example for a recurrent theme. My intention is to get us to
think about those processes, and how to improve them.

Thanks for the details nevertheless. By the way, there is a lot of
interest from external for this particular feature (baselibs) in the
buildservice. People have been asking for it from very early on. And
what I read in this thread sounded very much like a buildservice
feature, not an autobuild thing.
