Bug Description

You may want to scan even sucessful build logs, e.g. for compiler warnings and file bugs about these. Please add a mode to include or only scan successful builds.

I think this use case is a bit different than the build failures mode so it makes sense to put this in a separate script. Just about all components I imagine are needed are already in place so this is probably is cheap to implement.

Do you want this to be just a simple scan of the successful build in one archive, without cross checking? Or something like checking the build logs of similar builds in other archives to avoid filing those bugs? Now that I wrote that sentence I realize that this would probably become a bit fuzzy.

my current use case is gcc-4.6 introducing a new warning, with -Wall, which in combination with -Werror lets the build fail. I changed the compiler specs to pass -Wno-error=unused-but-set-variable if -Werror is passed, so that the build succeeds with a warning. So it actually is a build failure, but avoided by a workaround, with the hope to get a successful build or to catch other build failures. The spec change is only temporary, and will be reverted before a release.

I think that cross checking would be useful to see if the issue already is reported in lp.
