A few days ago I built an Amazon t1.micro instance cloud server (the
smallest and cheapest virtual server slice you can currently get, very
price effective...) for one of my other open source projects.
Initial experiments are going well, the t1.micro server seems ideal for
buildbot as the buildbot just hosts status pages and coordinates results
reported by external hosts that actually do the heavy lifting and
continuos code builds.
The URL is here:
Our OBF experiment is only a few days old but things look good. Not sure
what the GE devs are thinking about regarding builds and continuous
integration test suites but at least for buildbot it looks like a micro
cloud server could be a suitable control point.
