Rhys (and you, and hopefully others, later) could use tinderbox to see
if any of their check-ins broke the Mac build, HP build, etc. (I.e. OS's
that you don't have, but that other people have made available to the
tinderbox system.)

If people are willing to make their machines available, you can have the
machines do this automatable work.

Note that red on tinderbox means the build broke, and that orange means
one of the tests failed.

Or to blame an OS for being too different... :-)

"Blame" is such a harsh word. Think of tinderbox as a tool that helps
you catch problems early. You can narrow down the bug search to a
certain check-in or set of check-ins.

Well, yes, tinderbox is even more valuable when you have more than one
developer. Tinderbox might even get more developers interested in
