I think this is a great and important step to speeding up qt5.git integration 
and will speed up releases (the current beta of 5.4 is a good example of where 
this will help).

One think still missing is visibility - can we get a bot ping on #qt-labs for 
example whenever the results are there? I had a look at the results yesterday 
and saw quite a few platforms not passing as expected, but only people 
subscribed to the ci-reports mailing list will see this information.

So in summary, we need more noise about this. If someone feels like writing a 
simple web site that parses the results that would also be great, interpreting 
them should not be that hard and many scripts can be re-used. Let me know if 
you're interested in helping out there. I want to work on this myself but 
won't find time any time soon.
