Subject Re: Your Gump Build(s)

Projects like Xerces and Xalan are near the bottom of the food chain. I've 
always thought the projects higher up in the stack got more value from 
Gump. I don't remember the last time we got a notification for a 
legitimate build failure at our level. It was a rather rare occurrence, 
even while e-mail notifications were still being sent out.
