This doesn't have WK2 anymore because of the WK2 lockdown, right?

What's a good frequency for checking? How much work is it? Can it be done once
a week with an effort of say 30 minutes?

Sounds good. Although... wouldn't it be nice to have the Qt Linux ARMv7
Release bot building on build.webkit.org, for better visibility?
