Hi Fabrice,

Thanks for releasing this; it looks very useful!  The build bot looks like it could also benefit from the container infrastructure, since that takes care of depexts for a number of distributions.

Before I look further at this, I just wanted to confirm that the licensing of the buildbot is intended to be fully AGPLv3.  It looks like there's a fork of opamLib here: https://github.com/OCamlPro/opam-builder/tree/master/libs/copam <https://github.com/OCamlPro/opam-builder/tree/master/libs/copam> renamed under the copam namespace.

Compiling the full repository on one OCaml version can take one or two days, but next compilations are incremental (only impacted packages are recompiled, and binary archives are used to re-use previous compilations), so a report for every commit should be available after only a few minutes/hours, depending on the number of packages that need to be recompiled.
