will not trigger another build on HEAD until the build in progress is done.
It has been working fine.

Sure, we can look at that as well, but as I said earlier,
there need to be more bodies working on setting up builds and

that you think should be done?  We would welcome any contributions.

You can look at our scripts used to build and boot the various VM's:

It's all on github, so if you think you have new scripts to add, or fixes
to existing scripts,
you can feel free to do a github pull request to contribute.
