I believe its a machine donated to Debian. They are quite hesitant to
hand out shell accounts to people who aren't Debian Developers.

OTOH, running a build through buildbot should be fine if you have some
"legitimate" use. It would be bad if the build were triggered by people
who are not contributing to Python (this hasn't happened so far).
