OK. That makes sense. I will set up buildds on the (new, reliable!)
MPCore board ARM donated for armel work, and on a balloon3 I think I
can scrounge for this purpose.
I am moving jobs and offices next week which won't help get things
done quickly, but I'll try and get it sorted reasonably promptly.

We need to set up standard buildds they can just add to the system,
then start nagging.
For that, they/we need
(a) a set of Sources/Packages-files,
(b) some buildds needs to be configured to access wanna-build, and we
need to have ssh-pubkeys, one per machine.
