Good, now the virtual machines exist...

..but it seems you just duplicate the existing model of build bot VMs.
It is of course good to have more VMs that build and test MariaDB bzr
commits, but we need a little bit more here in preparation of the
debian/* merge from Debian back to MariaDB trunk.

I assumed this meant that Kristian would finish the setup. Kristian,
are you following this?

You you Daniel please check out the thread called "MariaDB" on
maria-developers starting here:

I guess the definition of what we want to achieve was vague and the
instructions terse. I'll try to write a more detailed list of commands
and setups that needs to be done, but I unfortunately don't have time
to do that today or tomorrow, so it will be next week.. sorry

Install unattended-upgrades and let the package do it's work
automatically. For some installs that do not run automatically you
might want to manually run apt-get upgrade / apt-get dist-upgrade
every few months.

Pbuilder upgrade could be run maybe weekly.
