As I just explained in a reply to another random build failure caused by this.

tip-bot2 is a notification mechanism to let people know that a particular
patch has been merged into one of the tip tree branches. These mails are
also properly threaded most of the time and reply to the patch which was
sent to the mailing list.

So yes, randomly picking patches from tip-bot2 is not useful at all. The
mails contain the information to which tip branch the patch has been
applied, so the only useful information for your bot is to select the
branch which got the new patches and start testing on that one.

Thanks,

tglx
