The problem is two-fold:

- If for whatever reason I stop working for the company I do now the  
   machine may be shutdown. I neither plan nor expect this, but it may  
   But then the homedirectories would be gone.
- If a maintainer leaves the build recipes may or may not be in his  
   If they are not it is hard to continue to provide support for the  

For these two reasons it would be very nice if the maintainers with  
build environments could check in their build recipes to SourceForge,
in whatever form. The important thing here is not automatization, but
well-known backup. If we can include alien build-scripts in the GAR tree
with automatization: all the better. This applies to

- Phil

Best regards
