you thinking of downloading the packages as well? Maybe we could add
some sort of "make check-urls" target that tests if the package is
available without actually downloading it.
Yes, doing the whole schebang, link to url, download, compile. Since its just one platform and its already stable, probably not terribly relevant doing the compile step, and as you mention, if there was a check-urls, it would even save the download bandwidth. If you can hook it up with a check-urls, I'll set it up with email reports. Would you also like to have it check run a test for 'tip' as well?
