I don't think so, patch 1 & 2 LGTM.

Now that Cuirass supports M-x guix-hydra-latests-builds, the next step
is to detect build start/stop (maybe via guix build log parsing see:

This way, for each new commit in guix, cuirass will only insert in
database the derivation that were built. Plus, it will be possible to
insert the build in db when it starts and update its status when it

Until this is developed, patch 3 LGTM too !
