A lot of us run 24/7 netted servers with spare cycles, & wouldn't
be averse to allocating the idle loop to package building for
freebsd.org, but 3 problems:
- package building at prsent gets done on that trusted cluster,
- needs root for lots of buils, which many of us dont
want to give out (sandboxes / chroot maybe ? )
- freebsd.org would need to know none of our client servers
had `slipped it a mickey', which would best be protected
against by anonymisining I guess, so we didnt even know
what we were compiling.
- It'd need some mechanised automation, like SETI
A nice project for some Summer Of Code student this summer ?
