I can build the 5 images in 1:20 on the power5 with 4 cores.

Okay. Lets take a look at the images:
* available:
  - 486
  - 686 (maybe we can adopt the lock-noop patch, see the xen repo for
  - 686-smp
  - k7 (the same)
  - k7-smp
* ready for merge:
  - vserver-686 (here, I think, we really should add the mentioned
    patch, as i386 have a too large overhead for locking)
  - vserver-k7
* wanted:
  - amd64-k8
  - emt64-$bla
* requested for -media (I think):
  - rt-686
  - rt-k7
* pending:
  - xen-686
  - xen-k7

This are 13 images. Also I got requests for openvz but rejected them
because they don't follow upstream.

* available
  - powerpc
  - powerpc-miboot
  - powerpc-smp
  - powerpc64
* ready for merge:
  - vserver-powerpc
  - vserver-powerpc64
