Ya, this is a hard one to do (Ethan suggested one method as well).
The problem is to try to figure out *who* created the problem. But
it's not always obvious, nor is it easy to figure out. Cisco nightly
regressions of internal software say, "A problem occurred -- here's
the people who committed since the test last ran successfully." So
it becomes a human problem to figure it out.

(that, and our SQA director puts a life-sized Dr. Evil cardboard
cutout in your cube if you break the build ;-) )

Ethan -- can you coordinate with everyone to find a time that works?
I can setup a phone bridge if necessary. Monday all day and Tuesday
afternoon work for me.
