I don't fully understand your point yet. Most of the bandwidth will be
consumed by downloading prepared images.
For openSUSE they have the same problem so for now they have this service
available by invitation only. I was suggesting that building the images on
the machine would be an option but serving the images needs more thinking
such as serving them via sourceforge. We could always ask hetzner (provider)
if they are willing to donate a machine and bandwidth. They will say no in
the worst case.
