Hi Cristian,

The following packages have been failing to build on Factory for more
than 30 days. This is a reminder for anybody that could be interested
in any of them. Any package failing to build for more than 100 days
will be dropped from openSUSE.

This is a test. Please give some feedback. Anything to improve?

Maybe
- add a meaningful "Subject"?

Yes, my fault.

- lower initial warning threshold from 30 to, say, 7 -- without analysis,
to allow "catching" the offender, especially when nothing changed
in the packet itself.

Would somebody consider 7 days too annoying?

- analysis might be worthwhile after 30 days
- dropping should happen more than 8 days from initial warning and never
be "automatic", or is this only a "threat"? (Some packages should simply
never be dropped -- having a previous build of 'elilo' is much better
than none at all!)

The "100 days" part comes from this message from Coolo
(http://lists.opensuse.org/opensuse-factory/2012-10/msg00262.html).
- It's not something new. Not documented anywhere but apparently has
been done for some time
- It's not automatic, as shown by the fact that the list includes
packages that have been failing for way longer. So take it as an
approximation.
