It would be helpful to realize that DES does not have an infinite amount of 
hardware and bandwidth, etc. at his disposal.  The tinderbox scripts are in 
CVS, and you are free to setup any number of tinderboxes that you wish to 
have on your _own_ hardware.  In other words, if we want to keep doing 
powerpc and ia64 tinderboxes (which I think would certainly be desirable) we 
need to find someone with some hardware to run it on.

In other words again: instead of mouthing off at DES like some two year old 
when his mommy takes away the toy he was borrowing from someone else so she 
can give it back to the original owner, go setup a machine and run the 
powerpc and ia64 tinderbox on it yourself sending out the e-mails to the 
appropriate lists, etc.  This is a community project, and when the load for a 
specific task gets too high for one person/machine to handle, we ought to be 
chipping into help share the load instead of beating up on the person who's 
been doing it all by themselves up until now.  <grump>
