Adding the start-time of the build in ISO format would also be highly
appreciated, at least by me ;-)

The date should reflect the time of the last commit that has been
considered. Such a time stamp would let me see with little effort
whether a failure is due to a long running build job that did not
catch-up with the latest fixes to a port, or whether there still is
an issue with a port (especially for the "exotic" architectures that
I do not test on my system and that often need a lot longer to complete
a build job).
