i (and possibly timothy) push to github after doing full build and
fate tests. If for some reason build or fate fails or iam aware of
a major/critical breakage in master which is not in github yet then i
do not push to github.
So github may be a few hours behind master but in the rare event
of a major messup it should not propagate to github before its fixed

When the tyrant has disposed of foreign enemies by conquest or treaty, and
there is nothing more to fear from them, then he is always stirring up
some war or other, in order that the people may require a leader. -- Plato
