Normally the d-i builds run on the DSA porterboxes as a daily cron job. We
don't have anything similar for debian-ports and just do the occasional manual
build. I guess if we liaise with -boot people then we might be able to have a
cronjob on kamp publish its results (and possibly for debian-ports arches too).

The DNS entries are Aurelien's who may be able to shed some light?

Which bit do you need help with? There are the sid-kfreebsd-{amd64,i386}-sbuild
chroots; you can start a session with `schroot -b -c sid-...-sbuild -n foo`, run
commands inside the chroot with `schroot -r -c foo` (with sudo if you need to
install things) and end the session with `schroot -e -c foo`. /home isn't mounted
inside the session, so you may need to copy files into /run/schroot/mount/foo/.
