At the moment the three machines on are Linux
sparc64, Linux ppc64 and Linux i686, and I'd be happy to include others.
The steps for setting up a new machine are:

* Read, get a username/pass

* Set up jhbuild; see

* "jhbuild build xorg-libs xserver xorg-drivers xorg-apps"; check that
  the build completes and you have the appropriate dependencies.
* Once you're ready to add the machine to the tinderbox front page,
  set up a crontab such as:

0 */2 *   *   *    bin/jhbuild autobuild -a -c --report-url="" xorg-libs xserver xorg-drivers xorg-apps

The tinderbox code can also launch the generated X server and perform
checks/benchmarks against it, but I don't have easy instructions for how
to do that with a new machine yet -- if someone wants to add that to a
machine (the "construct" i686 machine does so already) let me know.


- Chris.
