I sympathize.  That’s one of the reason [1] why I have not checked out
core-updates yet. :-)

I agree.  It could be helpful if Berlin or Bordeaux could build some
manifest for core-updates.  And then, once the manifest builds, we could
add some packages and repeat.

It would avoid that we all build the same things; worse, that each of us
burn many CPU just for knowing what fails.

Well, maybe it could be helpful if now Berlin or Bordeaux starts to
build etc/release-manifest.scm.  WDYT?
