Right, the proper way is for the appropriate people (DPL, DSAs, buildd 
infrastructure people, whoever can actually DO something about it) to 
say, "awesome, Aurelien! Thanks for taking some initiative, setting this 
up, and providing both your time and hardware to *vastly* expand the power 
of the ARM buildds! Now, let's integrate that into the regular buildd 
system by [doing some productive action ...]"

So, Mr. DPL -- if this is *not* happening because no one is communicating, 
or whatever, can you please take some responsibility here? Help 
communication, assign more delegates, or work this yourself?
