As a side point, if you are considering becoming a GHC buildbot slave,
and are going to go to the (admitedly pretty small) trouble of
installing buildbot etc, you might want to consider becoming a Yhc
buildbot. Being a Yhc buildbot takes very little processor power and
time - builds take between 3 and 15 mins.

Our existing list of buildbots is http://www.indiegigs.co.uk:8010/ ,
and our details on being a buildbot are
http://haskell.org/haskellwiki/Yhc/Buildbot . If you do want to be a
Yhc buildbot please drop yhc at haskell.org a quick email (cc'ing me,

Thanks (and appologies for being so off-topic on GHC-users!)
