Build server for packages

Hi, I'm curious is something like http://cook.slitaz.org/, build server where you upload tarball with build scripts from AUR and it produce packages. Would be useful for people using Arch on older, slower computers to test packages not officially supported like razor-qt. Or better ask does Arch Linux have enough finances to support such kind of service.

Re: Build server for packages

The devs have such a server, that's where most (all?) of the official packages are.. packaged.

Dunno if there's a community one.

That's the one. I can never remember what it's called.

That is incorrect. Most packages are built on each developer's personal machine(s).

pkgbuild.com can be optionally used for selective builds by developers and trusted users.

Re: Build server for packages

IIRC pkgbuild.com was used e.g. when the dev didn't have access to a 64-bit machine.

Re: Build server for packages

One of Arch devs suggests [building and testing packages as a way of helping Arch: http://allanmcrae.com/2013/05/ways-to-c … rch-linux/

I found somewhat similar idea in the wiki https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Pacbuild but the service doesn't seem to run anymore.
