Could you clarify a bit more why you think Jenkins does not fit well there?

I don't know how is designed and how it scales, but with
Jenkins it's quite easy to create a package build farm for distributed

Jenkins comes with lots of ready-to-use plugins as well, which makes
it easier to integrate a particular thing easier as well and not
re-invent the wheel.

Yep, that's one of the things we could use Jenkins for, but I would
say we could use it for lots of other stuff as well :)
