Right: so if we had *two* x86 buildds at *different* locations and *two* 
people who could check the logs and upload from *each* buildd, then as long 
as both people didn't go on vacation simultaneously, and the machines didn't
crash simultaneously, then the buildds could handle it.

Buildd redundancy is supposed to be an architecture release requirement;
it was waived because so many architectures were flunking it.  Is any 
progress being made on fixing this for etch and the future?

Bush admitted to violating FISA and said he was proud of it.
