I've already offered countless times (it's in the m-l archive) to
provide buildd power from the ESIEE cluster (see
http://www.fr.parisc-linux.org/cluster.html), which is also used by a
bunch of DD to fix hppa problems. Granted, this cluster currently has
some hw issues which I'm trying to fix (hopefully with the help of
some folks in the US ;-)

Sad but true, though I wouldn't say that "no one" is working; the
linux-parisc m-l shows "some" activity from a couple of developers
(Kyle McMartin, Helge Deller, to name a few)
