[questions] Debian mips testing mirror size and build server(s)


We have a big amount of old SGI Indy workstations running Woody. 
R4600 CPU, 1GB HDD, 16-128MB RAM and so on.
(Now 6 Indy, later there will be 10 or 12 Indy + 1 Indigo2).
All they were used for educational purposes in Belarussian State
University of Informatics and Radioelectronics (BSUIR) in laboratory of
*nix-systems . Their usage isn't intensive at all. 20 hours per day
the workstations are idle..

Some questions:
1) how much space is needed for full (binary + source) Debian Testing
Mips-arch mirror? How many  rsync traffic is in mips testing daily?

2) Can we build packages for testing? (as far as I can see there is a
serious problem in Debian Project)

3) If the answer to question 2 is positive, what do I need to do to
became a package builder?

We didn't have a direct internet IP, because the university local
network is deep behind the firewall (NAT). So i can't make a
public server.

PS: one Debian Developers gave me this bright idea :)
