After discussing this with Damien, instead of buying a second disk
for jonund and ecosse, an other option would be to buy SSD disks.
A 256GB SSD cost 380 euros. We also have a donation of 4 * 80GB SATA
disks (new disks never used). So on each node we could use 2 * 80GB disks
in raid 1 for the system, and do the builds on the 256GB SSD.

So that's 760 euros instead of 328. But I think it can be worth it, as
it can speed up the builds significantly.

About disk size, we currently have a 508GB partition on jonund, with
228GB used. But we have at least 200GB of old chroots that we can remove,
so I think 256GB would be enough.

What do you think ?
