         Debian land
       + ARM hw options being discussed with:
  - Boston for Calxeda ARM server -- pending on them getting back to us
    with proposal
  - Upstream kernel guys plan to drop mv78x00 (armel buildds), they are
    contacting Marvell for replacement hardware -- pending on them to ping us
  - Development boards donations: mx6q based boundary devices,
    openblocks (armadaxp)
     o MIPS buildd plan (zumbi)
        - all our existing hardware is buggy.  If this does not get
          fixed, we will not have any buildd or porter hardware for jessie.
        - zobel to replace disk of rem next week when on-site.
        - people working on mips64el port want to enter debian-ports
        - they are using loongson 3A devices, it would be good to
          investigate deeper if we can source some of that hardware as buildd.

        - current plan is to get 1+12x 2tb sata disks.

       + Need to migrate debian-ports services into DSA machine:
           - It needs to keep a separated archive from official one
             (mini-dak) and separated wb db.
       + Still need to figure out how are we going to allow non-DD uploaders
     o openstack (sgran)
