Very impressive piece of work aurelien! We ought to discuss if there
is any significant reason not to use qemu 'machines' instead of actual
hardware for slower arches.

As long as there's the occasional test on actual hardware, I don't have a problem with it.

For the faster arches, i.e. the ARM9 machines and above, I'm thinking that we should stick with real hardware so there's no question that the binaries will run properly.

How fast is each of your build machines in comparison to existing

The offered Hedges machine is more than twice as fast as existing
buildds and really ought to be brought into the network - it has been
offered for about 2 months now. I will mail DSA again to see if anyone
will tell what needs to be done next, by whom, and when. It is very
rude to people making such offers to give no response at all for such
a long time. Fortunately bill seems very tolerant of Debian's foibles,

What choice do I have? I'm not a DD, so it isn't like I have any authority to do otherwise. :)

and we can at least use it as a private developer-access machine in
the meantime.
