wired up in plague yet. I'll try to devote some further attention to that relatively
soon, but we may not want to be doing a whole lot of builds until we can build against a
newer tree. Anyone have any idea on ETA for CentOS 6?
I can deploy a RHEL6 x86_64 VM pretty quickly after final release that
could be used in the build system. Would that be helpful?
More builders would be helpful in general, assuming someone has the time (and appropriate
permissions/access) to integrate it into the build system, but it looks like there are
some almost ready to come online relatively soon already, and I don't think builder
capacity is the main issue we need to overcome to get things off the ground for RHEL6
anyway. The main issue is getting the RHEL6 build targets usable.
(Nb: the primary x86 builder has been running RHEL6 for a few months now).
