After a build's poudriere bulk run finishes there is more time
before the various package servers update. Matching a package
server's specific content near such a transition can be
problematical to automatically get correct.

For main's port builds there are build names like:


The "p" part 460b8b74cf94 identifies the ports
commit. The "s" part 4b0af11437 identifies the
commit for main [so, for now, 14].

The non-main builds just show the likes of
78bbde9c877d : the port commit. The Jail name
then identifies the ??.?-RELEASE involved but
via a somewhat variable naming convention. It
is not explicit to the patch level of detail.

The Ports column indicates if it is a quarterly
build vs. not.

The Status column having "stopped:done:" indicates
completion without crashes or such. "stopped:done:"
should have Remaining contain "0" but Remaining
being zero can happen for other forms of Status.

Lots of builds are incremental instead of being
bulk -a builds. Thus, lots of material was actually
built based on a prior commit but the more recent
commits are not supposed to have changed anything
that mattered (thus, the lack of a rebuild).
