What's insulting in that (apart from the misspelling of Aurelien)?

From http://blog.aurel32.net/?p=33:

    Yes I agree that real machines would be better, but I dont have a
    stack of fast ARM machines at home.

so, afaict, he doesn't have the capability to run a non-emulated arm
buildd. And hacking together a buildd quickly and easily is impressive
and useful for new ports, but it's more important for buildds for release
architectures to be well-connected and reliable over a long period. We
probably could change that expectation and have buildds be put together
by DDs from whatever they have lying around and hosting them at home;
I don't think it'd be a good idea, but others mileage may vary.

Not every criticism is an insult, and if you want to know why things
don't happen you need to be able to take criticism without taking insult.
