just a quick update after a night of building on CI.
Things look generally quite good on x86_64; some things are being rebuilt
due to the recent wget update, and that should hopefully also sort out
i686 rather quickly.

Python probably is the place where work is needed most, the strip in the
dashboard looks like it has measles. Fixing one package there could bring
us a long way (or not - we are in plain hand resolution of dependency
problems there, one update could also hide another one). Sometimes it is
just a matter of trying an update to see whether a package and its
dependents build, so even someone who knows nothing about Python, but
has a web browser pointed at, can do some useful work
(I am speaking from experience).

This is a real nightmare. ghc@9.2 on x86_64 has been building for 6 hours
in a row:
and we need to build many versions one after the other during bootstrapping.
While not blocking the core-updates merge, maybe the ghc team can try and
see whether we can cut corners. Or maybe drop tests on intermediate versions
that are only required for bootstrapping?

On aarch64 and powerpc, we are still stuck by CI problems.
