Describing the adventures building a build network of armhf machines to run reproducibility tests, using a variety of readily available consumer-grade boards to increase possible reproducibility problems due to hardware differences.
I will endeavor to explain how it grew from a few cute machines into a (still a bit slow) monster. Rumours will be spread of other monsters lurking on the horizon.
Comes complete with Colored Charts, Documented Side Effects, Power Consumption and Bandwidth figures, and 5-12 volt tentacle (mis)management, and perhaps most importantly, advice on avoiding (or falling prone to) the same fate yourself.
