[Mageia-dev] Will this work for a build system?

Hello Mageia Development Team,

I have a VM resource that I'd like to provide in the U.S. as a build
system if you think its acceptable:

Physical Hardware:
Dell PowerEdge T300 with Intel Quad Core Xeon E5410 2.33GHz (64-bit,
VT capable).
2TB storage via hardware RAID6

Virtual Machine:
I've created a VM using KVM which allocates 2 CPUs and 8GB RAM.  There
are 3 LVM virtual disks for /, swap and /var (or whatever) that are
free to grow within their 1TB volume group.

If you need 2 VMs (ie: for 32-bit and 64-bit) I can provide another
with 2 CPUs and 4GB RAM but I'll need to split the 1TB volume group
into two.

Bandwidth from ISP is marginal.  10Mb down, 2Mb up.  I think 10Mb down
is their limit but I'll see if they can increase the upload speed...

I know nothing about creating a build server so I'm willing to learn
or simply provide Magia development root access to the VM(s).

If you think this can be useful, I'll add it to the Hardware Resources
section of the wiki.  If not, I'll set it up as a local Mageia mirror.
