Build server reminder!

This is just a gently reminder that our cool build-on-commit system works
only thanks to the donated server resources by volunteers. Lately the number
of servers alive that tirelessly build everything has decreased and while we
still are seeing 10-11 servers, the time to build a single "round" (all builds
for all targets, currently 67 different ones) has increased and is now often
around 8 minutes from previously having been below 5 minutes during periods.
So, if you have a 2GHz+ Linux machine with a few gigabytes online, please
consider setting things up to help us build faster!
All details on how to setup a build server - it really isn't very hard - can
be found on this page in the wiki:
Of course, non-programmers also have numerous other ways to contribute to our
humble project and I jotted some down the other day:
