I should have said that I did meet that page. I tried looking for a
relevant bug, but I didn't manage to match the error messages I with the
known bugs.

I just counted the mails from Jenkins and I see 61 mails with "build
succeeded" and 12 mails with build failed. This is for patches that only
touch a comment line in the beginning of the file:


That looks like a 20% failure rate. Is this normal or have I been extra
unlucky? :)
