I'm wondering if it's worthwhile to either a) move back the nightly
tarball generation to, say, 9pm US Indiana time or b) perhaps make
the tarballs at multiple times during the day.

Since we're doing more and more testing, it seems like we need more
time to do it before the 9am reports. Right now, we're pretty
limited to starting at about 2am (to guarantee that the tarballs have
finished building). If you start before then, you could be testing a
tarball that's about a day old.

This was happening to sun, for example, who (I just found out) starts
their testing at 7pm because they have limited time and access to
resources (starting at 7pm lets them finish all their testing by 9am).

So what do people think about my proposals from above? Either 9pm,
or perhaps make them every 6 hours throughout the day.
