Not really necessary, long term. The builder is new, as is the OS release, and as such it has a lot of catching up to do due to bulk builds that where requested on it. Once it gets through these, and a backlog that created, such that it is just reacting to new commits like the other builders are, all the builders generally keep up with new commits such that they are usually built and available promptly.
