Cool. You may want to check out tgolem from Edwin:

Our tinderbox needs you :) See

This goes out to other devs and users as well: If there is some
arch/setup you care about dearly, and don't want to see it degrade
between releases without someone noticing, consider running a
tinderclient every now and then. That way one can notice when patches go
bad, and a simple warning fix breaks your build, for example. 

Thanks a lot to Eric Anholt for running the server tinderbox, it has
helped weed out many little mistakes quickly. 

Setting up a tinderclient is easy, and I can help people out on IRC, if
I am around. Our channel is irc://irc.freenode.org/kaffe .

Cool. I am loking forward to it.
