Regarding having a Solaris buildbot: if someone provides a Solaris buildbot then the deal is that that someone or some other party must look after that buildbot and fix problems that appear in it in a timely manner. Broken buildbots stop releases and I don't want to be in a situation in which I need to halt a release because the Solaris buildbot is broken and there is no-one to fix it in time.
In the past, we had to dealt with similar situations and not only is stressful but normally ends in me or Victor having to login in a buildbot for a platform that we are not experts on to try to fix it in time.
Seconded. Someone providing a buildbot for a fringe platform should also watch after regressions and be ready to submit patches when problems arise.
