I guess Dave Bolen and I have taken the first step: set up some OS X
buildbots.  I'd be happy to maintain an Intel buildbot in the PARC
server room if we can scrape up a donation of such a machine.  Doesn't
have to be new...

The next step is to turn those buildbots green.  After they're green, we
can propose them for addition to the stable set.  So, something the Mac
SIG could do to help is to take a look at the buildbot output, and
figure out why they're red, and not green.
