There is staging-patchy.  It does not require manual work, just
processing power, but lots of that.  It is not bothered if people run it
in parallel (the worst that happens is that cycles are wasted).

I still run it occasionally, and it is rather a holdup on my setup.

Then there is test-patchy.  It takes less processing power, but the
results need to be evaluated manually and an appropriate comment made.
It does not matter if people run it in parallel, but it is a bit of a
nuisance if the manual commenting overlaps.

staging-patchy and test-patchy currently use the same testing directory
(why?), so it will lead to problems if both are run on the same machine
at the same time.

lilypond-patchy-staging (?) is the more important one since it takes
more processing power and less manual intervention.
