We had a number of promises of build daemons but some have not
eventuated.  At the moment we have my XP1000 doing most of the building,
with Bill's two A1200s doing a bit of the work but there are some
teething problems with them.  Witold had added two XP1000s but they are
now unreachable, as is Witold, due to some part of the Internet
vaporising.  Thus we haven't got very far with building the large
backlog of unbuilt packages.

We really could do with another buildd and a more powerful machine such
as an ES45 would be extremely helpful.

At the moment there is a "huge need".

If Witold, and his part of the Internet, returns from the Void then the
need is reduced, but I don't have any idea if that is going to happen
anytime in the near future.

I hope, then, that you do search for another solution with a view to
contributing your ES45 to the autobuilder network!
