[Bf-committers] Revising the testbuild branch

I’m not happy at all with both the decision and the way it was taken.
Fyi, I was the one who spent a fair amount of time some months agon
setting this up, and I think it has proven to be really really useful
for all wip projects around.
Further more, I do not see any reason to just cut this out out of the
blue, there was no urgency at all here. And I do not even really
understand the root of the issue, imho people who are not able to make a
distinction between builds tagged as 'official' and builds tagged as
'testbuild' have nothing to do on builder.b.o.
But even though, imho it would have been much nicer to ask to add some
way to delete testbuilds from the server, again see no urgency at all
here that could justify this discontinuation.
Adding back build of all branches will just create much much more mess,
we won’t gain anything. Oh, and people that cannot understand what
'testbuild' means won’t be able either to distinguish from master and
branches builds - even less I’d say.
Very disapointed here!
