What's required to donate machines as autobuilders?  We have a large
number of Alpha machines here, some of which are running Debian rather
than Tru64.  We have lots of external bandwidth, and plenty of
management Debian buy-in.  I'm sure we could arrange to host an
autobuilder here (and probably autobuilders for Opteron and
IA64 as well)
