I know about http://hackage.factisresearch.com/ and
http://hackage2.uptoisomorphism.net/ but they both run Hackage2.0 I think.

Yes. We have talked about this with Duncan. He was wondering whether there
was a way to get scoutess to handle the "build bot" part of Hackage2.0 and
we will develop it so that it can. However, with Jeremy we intend to let
people distribute their builds on several machines so you will not be
forced to have one machine do all the work.

Of course we are not there yet, but I thought you would appreciate hearing
about what is planned for scoutess.
