Hi Jim, hi all,

When I went to LinuxTag, I came across a very interesting project called 
Xenofarm http://www.lysator.liu.se/xenofarm/ , which is " a distributed 
system for cross platform compilation and verification of software 
components. It is primarily used to help achieve and maintain portable 
source code across hardware architechtures, operating system and 
libraries and to quickly detect and fix regression bugs in source code."

It looks like something we could use to improve status reports on kaffe. 
See for example the Pikefarm, used by the Pike project : 
http://pike.ida.liu.se/development/pikefarm/ , results at : 
http://pike.ida.liu.se/development/pikefarm/7.5.xml . It is also being 
used by the python project here 
http://www.lysator.liu.se/xenofarm/python/latest.html . All in all, it 
looks more appealing than mozillas tinderbox to me ;)

Would someone be interested in setting it up on kaffe.org, and would 
people be interested in running clients on their platforms under 
whatever configurations you use?
