Well I meant after the rebuilds were completed, but
the majority of the packages had already been rebuilt
at the time of writing.  Which one was interrupting
you testing? :)

Mathstuf, Lakshmi, and I have now rebuilt
nearly all (15) of the remaining packages.

The only remaining pending rebuilds I am aware
of now are xmobar and hedgewars (which Bruno is working on).

Not sure what you are talking about.
Obviously it is impossible to rebuild top-down.

Anyway sorry for the rawhide report noise,
hope it didn't spoil your weekend too much. :)
