No, you did talk about "testing with a clean bootstrap". Still,
failures that manifest themselves after a bootstrap and not a normal

I don't think there are many bugs that would've been catched by
testing after bootstrap and are not detected a week after they're
committed to the repository...

My previous one (which I recently retired) was born on 2006.
Bootstrapping was about half an hour. But I wouldn't be surprised to
hear that people are building and bootstraping Emacs on slower
computers (netbooks, for example).
