I've pulled a machine from our test rigs to be a build daemon.  I've
got the successful build rate for rebuilding out of date packages up
to around 75%.  That is, it will generate the .debs without my 
intervention, not that I've installed and verified the results.
I've got 4 hours a day to work on the screwups.

As soon as I've finished the out of date libs/* packages I'll start
auto building and uploading all the out-of-date packages.

After that I'll look at the netwinder installation kits.  I don't
know anything about Acorns, but I have experience in cramming linux
into tiny spaces.

What sort of package coverage or milestones should we reach to call it
a release?  How about kernel issues to be nailed before release?

I'm showing something like...
	1073 up to date or not architecture appropriate
	617 out of date (less 39 sitting in my upload spool)
	999 uncompiled
