Just for your information. Latest versions of wip/distbb allows running
bulk builds over unreliable network, e.g. internet. DistBB is now
fault-tolerant. In case of connection loss to build host(s) (reboot,
hang up, crash etc.) DistBB will reassign failed task(s) to another
build hosts when they become available. More over, DistBB periodically
tries to restore connection to previously failed build hosts, as a
result you can freely reboot build hosts (not all simultaneously :-) ).
This feature is optional.
