+1 as a contributing packager. I really don't want to wait on a
network of residential band limited donated cpu cycles (similar to my
own) to do a test build and sanity check. If I could wait for that I'd
just do it locally.

I'd also like to see if we can use utility cloud resources to
efficiently scale out a mass rebuild on demand and perform
self-hosting test runs or failure to build runs on a regular scheduled
basis. Something we can do in a well managed utility cloud I would
think without slowing down day to day packaging work.
