Something around 2GHz would be ok

I think you should do that, if there are some changes that involve
wineserver and some change to registry.

Ok, it would be interesting how parallelization could affect wine :)

Also add Yellow for ignored patches.
For ignored patches /i would like to add a second pass, when have to
check if the patch is generated by git or not
if not patch is being ignored now, for that we need to process the
patch to see whether we can extract some info to send the correct
patch level.
