Would it help if we bought some Sheevaplugs, put them online as koji
builders and gave access to Fedora developers? That sounds like
something we could do.
Thanks for the offer, but not sure it would help: GlobalScale is
backlogged on the production of both SheevaPlugs and GuruPlugs, so I
doubt a new order would arrive any earlier than the 20 units already
coming -- plus the local builders are connected directly to the hub by
GigE. (Update today: GlobalScale says the plugs will ship the last week
Oh, and has anyone experimented to see whether qemu-arm on a fast
box with lots of RAM performs faster compiles than a SheevaPlug?
We used qemu-system-arm to do initial feasibility testing last semester.
On a decent Intel box, it runs at about 10% of the speed of a
Sheeva/Guru when executing build tasks.

Sure. Here's the list, we're currently on F11:
Perfect, thanks! Looks like there are a few dozen packages you use that
are missing in F12 ARM.
