+NOTE: this worker is also responsible to run the script which tops

+once every 10 days. A "force build" button is also offered to run
+this task.
The worker is implemented by the @emph{testswitcher} user. This user
has some additional "sudo" rights, since it has to act as @emph{test-blue},
`test-gree@emph{$1}est` user in order to accompish its task.
