We want to get a better idea how long it takes a talos machine to cycle, currently we only gather data on how long it takes to test + report numbers. We need to include the time to check out/download/install/etc. This can be done by adding an initial build step to all talos buildbot factories that creates a time stamp.
Talos now reports the test cycle time as part of the tinderbox waterfall dump, I believe that that is sufficient to cover this bug as well.
Moving closed Future bugs into Release Engineering in preparation for removing the Future component.
