That's why Casper proposed to apply strict checks to the main trunk only. 
The other branches could get automated builds and tests on demand, with 
some sort of booking application on the build server. And anyway ReactOS 
can be built in less than ten minutes on common hardware, and installed, 
ran and tested in even less

it isn't safe to put so much trust into the client. The only way to verify 
the build/test results sent by the client would be to run the build and 
tests on the server...
