Subject: Build server reminder!

Build server reminder!

Hi friends

This is just a gently reminder that our cool build-on-commit[1] 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:
