Re: Spending Debian money for porter boxes

The ones you mentioned on IRC were sparc and powerpc. PowerPC is
getting an extra debian.net porterbox as we speak, this one being a quad
2.5GHz G5 with 6G memory and 500G disk. (It'll run a buildbot for
Varnish so it won't be a DSA machine.)
Thanks a lot to Jan Ingvoldstad and Domainnameshop.com for giving me
the machine so I can make it available as a porter box.
