Re: Debian needs more buildds. It has offers. They aren't being accepted.

What's the problem? I presume the machine which you refer to is a Lasat

[Debian needs more buildds - in particular on mips and mipsel]
Here several issues come together. I can only speak for mipsel
We originally had two mipsel buildds (keeping up quite well), of
which one is currently mostly unavailable due to instabilities. First
suspect was a broken fan, but there seems to be another
hardware-related problem which is not clear yet. Florian Lohoff is
looking into this.
As the maintainer of the port to these machines perhaps I can help somehow?
What are the demands on a buildd? I have two of the same machines here,
one of which
I develop the kernel on and the other which I run as my mail/web...
server. Perhaps we
can come to some arrangement which allows you to use (some of) the
capacity of these
machines. I have also some Lasat Masquerade II's which are very slow
but which could perhaps be used - slow is possibly better than nothing?
