Hi all,

The Adopt build farm is now also in a place where failures across all
platforms will get reported (within 30-60 mins of a push to a repo).

We’re still shy of regularly passing JCKs, but once we cross that milestone
then I’ll start a serious discussion on how we can best feed failures etc
back into OpenJDK mailing lists.
