is still broken :)

This assumes that there are currently servers that build and test the VM, and implies that we maintain the notion of the most recent good VM that has passed all the tests, and that this is the "latest" VM everyone is using.

yes of course, what we have is two versions of the VM:
- “latest" build is a build with latest sources… this might be broken. People willing to help us find bugs should use this.
- “stable” build is the VM after it passed all tests… and that’s what people willing some stability should use :)
what actually is happening now is that there is a lot of people helping in the migration of spur (something I thank, a lot) and then they use latest vm version… who is usually very stable (but not always, as is the case).
