AW: Build server reminder!

I've a running Linux webserver which I use mainly for serving my photo galleries!
It is only a 1.7GHz machine with 117GB free disk space, but IMHO I think it might worth giving it a try!

Hi friends 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: http://www.rockbox.org/twiki/bin/view/Main/BuildServer Of course, non-programmers also have numerous other ways to contribute to our humble project and I jotted some down the other day: http://daniel.haxx.se/blog/2008/01/14/what-can-i-do-for-rockbox-when-not-programming/  = http://daniel.haxx.se/blog/2007/11/13/distributed-builds-on-every-commit/ -- Daniel Stenberg -- http://www.rockbox.org/ -- http://daniel.haxx.se/
