An addendum here. Jason gave us a status report of pacbuild last time.
I lost it in the shuffle when writing up the report, so forgot that it

The full text is here:

So there are a few pending changes, the following will NOT block a release:
   Better logging in Apple and Strawberry
   Automatic chroot rebuilding
   Usage of the chroot tools from devtools
And the following are considered "blocking"
   Ability to 'cancel' a package not currently being built
   Include packages depends/makedepends
   Addition of 'depwait' status for when a dependency has not been
built successfully

Git tree for progress:

So, if we take a look at the last three items that block this release,
we can actually get this up and running without those features.

So, next steps. I'm going to setup my x86_64 build machine as a
pacbuild build machine to start testing things out. Anyone willing to
setup some build machine instances for me? This way we can get it
working and debugging.
