I was not sure what you referred to here. But now it is. You refer to
the build infrastructure only.

Please let me summarize again what has been said previously:

- semi automatic build using rmtools
  - rmtools is pretty easy  to understand, it wraps what one has to do
manually in php
  - most of its code is about generating human friendly reports (build
log or analyzers)
  - mid term (within a couple of months), travis will be used. I
repeat: Travis-ci will be used for this task.

Build logs or something else?

Build logs are sent to the extension developers on error and are part
of the builds archives. You can fetch them on

Should not be too hard. Do you have a windows VM with VC + SDK
installed at hand?
