As far as a build server, if I can get this thing running fairly stable, I could probably host a build server at least part-time, due to the monsoon season is upon us right now, so power outages can be a problem. I have 4Mbit. downstream here, of which I could dedicate 2Mbit. to the build box, but only about 750Kbit. upstream (considering I'd need a little bandwidth for myself). My J6750 has dual 875mhz. cpu's and 7 gb. of RAM. I'll try to notify Helge if I can get this thing online, and I'll hand him the leash via SSL and see if he can make it play nice! Might as well have it doing something useful. :)

Don't want to discourage but running a buildd will take a lot of effort after it set up. Quite a few packages need a tweak here
or there to get them to build.  I have a collection of crib notes.

I believe that you will find your upload bandwidth too small. When I was on ADSL, uploads took forever.

Some useful links:

Your J6750 may well be able to keep up but there have been issues on some archs in keeping up.

All the packages needed to setup a wanna-build infrastructure and a buildd are in the archive. What we lack is a trigger script that can handle the distributed nature of the source and package archives. The easiest solution might be to mirror the archives to a local machine as there is a local trigger script.
