That sounds like an awesome idea. Thanks for working on it. Build
breakages themselves have become less of an issue for us in recent times
- people are definitely more aware of our bots, and are acting on fixing
them when they break.

I think such an automated approach to running the build, and tests for
upcoming patches will surely help with giving this a second step

See you,
