The original PCRE (PCRE1) is now at end of life and no more changes are planned, so there is no point in continuing with those builds. The PCRE2 project has just moved from vcs.exim.org to a new home on GitHub (https://github.com/PhilipHazel/pcre2) and that is where development will now happen. I'd be grateful if you could update your Waterfall configuration to pull the sources from the new repository. The old one will no longer change, and at some point soon it will disappear. Note also that my primary email has moved to this gmail account.

Sure. There is also the possibility to integrate the CI more tightly in
the GitHub build process: the build can be triggered via GitHub push
and pull requests. For this to work it would be nice if you could set
up a hook in the GitHub pcre2 project:

Payload URL: http://github:buildbotcsw@buildbot.opencsw.org:8010/change_hook/github
Content Type: application/json
Secret: c0b145501adb70e910cd384f2c4034e9
Events: pull request, push

Then either generate a personal access token with the scope „repo:status“ or add
@buildbot-opencsw to the collectd-project as collaborator (token is probably more secure).
Please send me the token so I can configure it properly in our buildbot.

After that hopefully pull requests will be automatically checked on Solaris and status
easily visible directly in GitHub next to the commit.

Of course I can also stick to the existing polling method if you think this is
not helpfull or too much work :-)

Best regards
