Yes, there are two use cases, but I'm most interested in making the
check results useful for package developers.  The easier it is for
package maintainers to review the status of their package(s) and fix
problems as they arise, well, the easier things are on our end here.

We are now capturing more output.  Click on the OK next to RBGL under
the BUILD column and you will see compilation messages.

But I think we are only capturing output from R CMD build (not
INSTALL).  *If* the package has a vignette, then R CMD build will
trigger a local install.

So perhaps our new setup provides an incentive for adding vignettes?

We'll look into adding installation logs.

Thanks for the feedback.
