I think this is not exactly the issue. As I told you before, you are
welcome to set up the A500 (since the rp3440 is broken, and I don't
have the means to repair it) hosted at ESIEE (which has plenty of bw)
as an autobuild. I think the problem has more to do with finding
someone knowledgeable about the process AND willing to go through the
pain of said setup. I for one will not volunteer, for the reasons I
already detailed in previous emails ;-)

Sure, I didn't forgot your offer, and yes, it's a lot of work...
Nevertheless, it doesn't hurt if we have more build servers as well.

I have buildd running on my rp3440 and also have installed the wanna- build database infrastructure. What is lacking are the trigger scripts for wanna-build to handle the remote debian source and parisc package archives. There is a local
trigger script.

So at the moment, the simplest solution appears to be mirroring the archives locally.
I'm a bit worried about how much net bandwidth this will require.

All the packages to set up buildd and wanna-build are in the parisc archive. It's not that much work. The work in running a buildd server is in monitoring it and resolving package build issues. I'm not seeing the ports access issue being
resolved unless we can demonstrate a working system.
