Just replying out loud.....

I can see that some of the comment from datamation maybe is waranted.

For me the fustration is building a package from git repo say tdebase on a 
monday then working on several other packages and then update the local git 
repo rebuilding tdebase on friday results in tdebase not building at all.  
Possibility due to a commit/patch/update in the source.  I have since 
abandoned building from git and only use the 3.5.13 tarballs which have 
worked well for me.

My question is before a commit is made does whoever 
changed/updated/patched/crunched/mutilated the code, first see if it builds 
without barfing/puking then do the commit?

As for running TDE in general (which I have run it exclusive since I finished 
the arch linux build scripts last month) I have not experienced any breakage 
etc except for a few things in some of the apps that are minor and I can wait 
them until someone gets to fixing them so I don't see any big problema with 
running TDE.
