Thanks!  I saw some weird stuff in your commits, on which I'll likely

Lately, I am making these builds on a machine that is normally powered
off.  So you can't for that reason alone. ;-(

I think I'm the one to make official builds this time as well.

Longer term, perhaps we'll need to setup some new machine for official
builds that will be always on, if that will allow someone else on our
team (maybe you) to be making those builds.

Thank you for this info!
