I now have built an (opt-in) system which fetches the packages built by 
this into your upload area and triggers calm to process them, which I'm 
looking for a volunteer to test.

Currently, these packages are built using 'cygport all-test', and so 
will always be marked test:

One possible issue is that a git commit doesn't have to change VERSION 
or RELEASE, so this can build packages which are then immediately 
rejected by calm, as that PVR already exists.

I'm not sure if that's a real problem, or what the workflow should look 
like in regards to that.
