    55The core builders are the builders that show up on this page:
     
    99Core developers of the WebKit engine use this page to see whether their changes have caused test regressions.  Having a builder on the "core" page does not guarantee that folks working on the engine will keep the builder green, but those builders are more visible and therefore more likely to be actively maintained.

    1313If your favorite builder is consistently green for two weeks, you should write a patch that adds it to the set of core builders.  Generally I (abarth) will happily review patches that add a core builder that has been green for 90% of its past 200 cycles, especially if the builder has hitting that mark consistently.

    1717If your favorite builder is consistently red, it's likely someone will remove it from the set of core builders.  For example, if I (abarth) notice that your favorite builder is often red for 90% of its past 200 cycles, I'll likely post a patch to remove it from the core set, especially if the redness is due to a failure to compile and not just a handful of test failures.
