There is no exact clear criteria for deciding which clients shall
upload the snapshots.  If you need snapshots for a builder that
currently does not have, tell me.  But I think it would make more
sense to save the resulting builds only for builders that build for
Tier-1 platforms and the build is the different enough from others for
the (similar) platform.  For example, keeping the snapshots for every
minor version of OS X or Linux + glibc might not be a great idea.
However, validating on the most possible combination of systems is.
