all that much that can be done about it. Add to that the fact that
they fired most developers recently ...
What I miss from Azure though is the nice report with the summary of
builds, similar to what we get from Travis (the reports are done by
our own code, written by @l2dy). @l2dy already explained that he
cannot get the same kind of hooks from Azure (or something along those
lines, I forgot the details).
If anyone is willing to spend extra effort, another thing would be to
work on automated builds on self-hosted buildbot workers, but done in
a safe way, which means that we need to implement starting & stopping
VMs with older versions of macOS (as old as it gets) for each PR.
