Cool!  How did you hook it up to the Upstart sources though?  at release
time, or e.g. from some Jenkins job pushing the latest version daily?

Does this scan the Ubuntu branch of Upstart, the upstream one or both?

Would it be ok license-wise and hard for us to do this at a larger
scale; e.g. have some kind of daily job that pushes the latest Ubuntu
source packages from a set to be tested?
