Sorry for the late reply.
Just a note: I got a second x86_64 builder offered for long term use by
someone else in private.

I've already got the better part of a local mirror and a reasonably
hefty pipe (20Mbps incoming, 5Mbps out), and could try to have a box
available this weekend... Nothing fantastic, just a dual-core opteron
1.8GHz w/2GB of RAM, but its doing nothing else at the moment.
Definitely available if nobody has anything better available

If I can merge some stuff from a full-time-on i686 box I've got
, is where we do mythdora collaboration/spinning)
onto the x86_64 build host, I wouldn't have a problem with keeping it
up and running indefinitely. Just don't want to have a third entirely
separate machine running full-time... :)
That sounds like a nice box that's way faster than what we have (a old
and small Athlon 64 desktop box). If you want to offer it for the long
term I'd be willing to configure it (means: install plague-builder and
mock; enable it in the plague-server; test).
If you just want to offer it only temporary then I'd say we wait a bit
until we have RPM Fusion running poperly; then we can configure your
box, use it temporary, reinstall the livna builer, configure it anew and
switch back again.
