New build machines for mips and mipsel
Broadcom, who have previously donated a number of fast MIPS development
boards to a number of Debian developers, have recently donated two boards
to be used as build machines. Branden authorized some money to be spent
on more RAM and some IDE disks and these machines are now hosted at
Oregon State University. Ryan Murray has installed the machines and is
now running buildds on them.
One machine is used in little-endian mode (mipsel) while the other one is
building the big-endian mips archive. These are fast machines (dual-core
800 MhZ) and can easily keep up with daily uploads. Broadcom will probably
donate two more boards in the near future so we can implement permanent
buildd redundancy on both mips and mipsel.
