Subject Re: [VOTE] Stop sending GUMP build failure emails to taglibs-dev

-1 for the same reasons Morgan mentions.

I find the GUMP warnings useful also - though it would be great if we could
get GUMP to continue building all the taglibs and report all failures rather
than stopping on the first one.

-1 for now.  I have to agree with Ted.  IMO the GUMP messages are at worst
harmless and potentially beneficial.  (Unless there is some issue I am not
seeing, which is certainly possible.)  BTW GUMP would be somewhat more
effectried if it tried to build all the Taglibs rather than haltinq on the
first.
