Ok, then we will need to do some development here, it will take some

Regarding HD space, as slaves would be hosted in external servers, that
should not be a big deal. We would only store logs with build results
while the actual build is hosted in the slaves. Currently, with just one
slave running the master occupies ~100MB (mostly logs).

To be safe, thinking that we might increase the time we keep logs stored
or the number of modules to build, etc... we can think of 500MB - 1GB
per slave.

Sure, but I don't know how much we would need because of this maybe 10%
or 20%? That would make for 15-30 modules increase.

We already have this one running and it needs around 11GB. Thinking on
the possible module increase in the future I'd go for having around 20GB
for this.

Yeah, it is also in my ToDo list:
- Fix jhbuild update
- Rewrite checkout modes patch for jhbuild
- Make buildbot server work with just one external port
- Put gnome buildbot in jhbuild svn
- Review Ensonic's comments on August
- Sure I forget something :)

I'm having quite a big load after holidays at work, that's the reason
this is taking so long, but I hope I can get things started in a copuple
of weeks.
