That would be preferable, but for legacy reasons Vesta and Minerva are  
left for tied jobs.  This was because the Master was the only build  
node for 1.5+ years and had lots and lots of build on it when we then  
added Vesta and Minerva.  For compatibility reasons, we set it up as is.

Suggestions on how to change this now?  How to migrate builds off  
Master?  Clearly the extremes are "rip the band-aid off -- builds  
start failing that try to run on Master" & "big project to contact  
build owners and push them to migrate".
