We're trying to do even better than that:

You're most welcome to help out. There are several sub-tasks to this.

In the medium term, expecting the hackage server to be able to build
each package is unrealistic. It will never have all the system libs and
eventually will probably not have the cpu time to even build them all.
The solution is to have separate building and have hackage just report
the results.
