I've built this but am running into OS or hardware problems when trying to run the test suite, so don't know if I'll be able to sign it in time.
(Linux is throwing SSD I/O errors and remounting the FS read-only when I run the test suite. Repeatably. It's the first time I've tried to run a full multi-way svn test suite on this new machine, although I have successfully run single "make check"s. After re-booting, the file system (ext4) checks OK, the drive's SMART data shows no errors except "runtime-bad-blk-total = 2" which I think is insignificant, a "disk surface self-test" checks out OK, and everything works just fine until I try to run the tests again. So it looks like a hardware/firmware/OS-driver interaction bug. I have found a number of similar reports on the internet, but no specific diagnosis or solution for my case.)
