Hi,

    Just saw that on one ML:

http://www.snakebite.org/
http://mail.python.org/pipermail/python-committers/2009-January/000331.html

Bottom line: it looks like there is a set of machines which were donated
to the PSF for buildbot *with shell access* so that people can fix
problems appearing on some platforms. If you look at the email, there
are some 'exotic' machines that mere mortals cannot have access to (like
True64 on Itanium: to quote the email "massive quad Itanium 2 RX-5670s,
chock full of 73GB 15k disks and no less than 78GB of RAM between the
two servers; 32GB in one and 46GB in the other"). There are also windows
machines available.

It is said in the email that this is reserved to the python project, and
prominent python projects like Twisted and Django. Would it be ok to try
to be qualified as a prominent python project as well ?

cheers,

David
