incompatibilities) caused issues. I see Infra is now taking action about 
this and I highly appreciate it - and in the meantime we are testing

On the "old OS" discussion: to keep it short, our release builds must be 
done on an old system as they will run on any Linux-based system that is 
NEWER than the one used for building. Of course, insofar as we use 
buildbots just to check that the build doesn't break, it's fine to keep 
them recent; but if we were to use them to build releases, then we have 
to do it on an old system. This holds for Linux, probably not for 
Windows and Mac.
