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>
