The problem is that many integration builds are not usable.  The
last two integrations were very hard on my mental sanity(GNU/Linux platform)
So basically I had to rewind to an "older" one.
So as a user, I can no longer follow the developement of the CDT(M7 will not
work with the latest builds).

How to make this easy for the cdt community ? good question.
Maybe when the stable "m8" is out, we could use it to do builds instead of
the moving integration targets.
