Thanks for that note. I've immediately scrolled down to
Package Builds section consistently, never noticing that

which could be used directly.

I found that if I first sort on Started (UTC) and then
change to sort on Ports, the sort is a stable sort and
the time order is preserved within the block of
"default"s that results. Thus I'm seeing a block of 24
