Infrastructure for OpenWrt

Let's talk about infrastructure in this topic instead of the Timeline for an 18.x release? topic

The OpenWrt wiki Infrastructure page describes the hardware that we had in place in January 2017. It would be helpful to get an update, both to the current capacity, and potential growth.

This might also be the place to see whether it makes sense to coordinate people who say they might contribute money to support/expand the infrastructure.

So which version of buildbot is running, how do we contribute buildslaves and what additional criteria do you have for these machines?

I have some machines laying around which typically are somewhat bottlenecked for bandwidth and disk i/o, but not CPU or memory, which is what I imagine compiling code would use most. Are there any general requirements for these?


@jow knows probably best what kind of hardware would be most useful as buildslaves.
