LOL :-)

Well, OK. I'll give you that one.

Should be no problem.

As I said, it's still possible to add some RAM to this machine. I must be
having some unused RAM-SIMMs lying around here, and there's an unused
Centris 610 (No network, LC040) here too. With 20 Megs of RAM.

I just found that out when trying to build a custom kernel ;-)

buildd, wanna-build and sbuild are all in the same source-package ;-)
(and quinn-diff too? Not sure)

I'll ask him for more information. Thx!

BTW: Why is there no buildd in the archive? Especially when configured
using some nice debconf-things, this would encourage people that are not 
that technically skilled to set up auto-build-environments. Is there an
emotional or a technical reason to that?
