It's very useful if someone reviews regressions manually and files bugs / 
notifies authors of patches that seem likely to have caused them / fixes 
them if straightforward.  However, that can take a lot of time (especially 
if you're building a large number of configurations, and ideally there 
would be at least compilation testing for every target architecture 
supported by GCC if enough machine resources are available).  (I do that 
for my glibc bot, which does compilation-only testing for many 
configurations, covering all supported glibc ABIs except Hurd - the 
summaries of results go to libc-testresults, but the detailed logs that 
show e.g. which test failed or failed to build aren't public; each build 
cycle for the mainline bot produces about 3 GB of logs, which get deleted 
after the following build cycle.)
