Thanks largely to Ian Lynagh, GHC now has a BuildBot infrastructure to automate
nightly builds on multiple platforms. This replaces the old set of shell
scripts that we used to run nightly builds; now adding new clients to the setup
is relatively easy, instructions are here:
So far we have various Windows builds running, and I'll be moving over the
existing Linux nightly builds in due course.
If you have a spare machine or a machine that is idle overnight, and you'd like
to use it to run automated GHC builds, then please take a look at the above page
for how to get started. We especially need platforms that we don't use
regularly (i.e. not Windows or Linux/x86/x86_64).
