We do not have the resources for that.. but if you volunteer such a
box... sure, by all means...
what is needed ?
- a box that do build, preferably in reasonable time... but since
right now there are no *BSD tinderbox, anytime is more reasonable than
+inf :-)
- download the contrib/buildbot repo  :
- read http://cgit.freedesktop.org/libreoffice/contrib/buildbot/tree/README.tinbuild2
- bear in mind that the tinbuild2 script and dep and un-apologetically
bash. I have zero interest in wasting time to get to the lowest common
denominator. (*)
- look at https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/Development/Tinderbox#List_of_registered_Tinderboxes
and when the time comes, register your box there... be mindful of the
naming convention...
- once all that is up and running, and if there is a need/benefit to
have dailies uploaded, then we will work on the next step to get the
right credential to do that.


(*) as tinbuild2 has never been exercised aaik on *BSD platform, there
may-be some quirk. fortunately tinbuil2 has a way to do 'platform
overload' look at
for such example for MacOS
see the comment in the top of
for some more explanations
