I am setting up a Solaris 10 buildbot and the same situation exists there:

Plus I am planning to add 32/64, which would total 8 configurations. But I am not a buildbot expert so maybe it will be possible to do this another way. (The zone has limited resources also.)


I myself have almost repaired my desktop computer, so we can expect to have a dual 32/64-bit buildbot slave to be added as soon as I finish setting things
