There's been some recent discussion in the PSF wondering where it would make sense to throw some money to remove grit in the wheels; do you think this is a case where that would help?
Most likely yes. It's not a huge undertaking, and there are a lot of people out there in the community with the knowledge of Buildbot to make this happen.
I'm at least willing to set up the buildbots for projects I care about (Twisted, pydoctor, whatever), and perhaps help out with the setting up the buildmaster.
It would be really great to have someone setup buildbots for other important/large python projects to test python svn HEAD with. I can't even stay on top of the python buildbots, so I'm not volunteering for more work. I will greatly appreciate and thank whoever takes this on though. :-)
The harder problem is keeping it running. Setting it up, in some ways is a lot easier. It's at least well defined. Maintaining it for several months is a different story.
