All started with this email:

ARM was *in danger*, a lot of stuff (java, xulrunner, mono, ...) were
not working correctly. People worked hard to fix that, but it was very
difficult to get packages depending on fixed stuff to get requeued. Also
a lot of "arch-specific compile errors" were actually due to build
daemon problems.

I have decided to help the ARM port at that time, and I am building
around 20 packages per week on my NSLU2 since this moment (the glibc
being frozen, I don't have test build to do). It takes me a lot of time,
so I decided to automate the process with build daemons. We will see the
evolution of the ARM port without those uploads. I know at least two
packages with RC bugs which won't move to testing because one of the ARM
build daemon have (recurrent) problems (and it's not netwinder nor
elara). And this time I won't be able to build them by hand.
