As I consider this feature really missing, I would like to dontate my $0.02:
If you - Oracle, community, IBM whoever rich enough - will provide..well donate - an reasonable
fast machine, I will offer my time and my code to establish proper
pull-snapshot-build-offerImages (later also test) for all reasonable forests on
http://hg.openjdk.java.net and http://icedtea.classpath.org/hg/.
If this is working fine, it would be awesome to include it like some x.openjdk.java.net service.
I do this already for years, to have pre-releases for fedora packages.
usually something like x3500 tower server with 2x2.5gh 8core xeon and about 72Gb ram, which can
run 6 builders in time - is enough.
 99% is done by this jenkins plugin - https://github.com/judovana/jenkins-scm-koji-plugin. the
missing 1% is jenkins job configuration, which does not much sense to push public without comunity
around. it is forest-pull script and absolute minimal build scripts to provide both fastdebug and
release static builds for linuxes and windows. Some 20kb with a patch allowing generic builds on
"oldest possible linux"
