At the moment the three machines on http://tinderbox.x.org/ are Linux
sparc64, Linux ppc64 and Linux i686, and I'd be happy to include others.
The steps for setting up a new machine are:
* Read http://tinderbox.x.org/participate, get a username/pass
* Set up jhbuild; see http://wiki.x.org/wiki/JhBuildInstructions
* "jhbuild build xorg-libs xserver xorg-drivers xorg-apps"; check that
the build completes and you have the appropriate dependencies.
* Once you're ready to add the machine to the tinderbox front page,
set up a crontab such as:
0 */2 * * * bin/jhbuild autobuild -a -c --report-url="http://USER:PASS@construct.laptop.org/builds/rpc" xorg-libs xserver xorg-drivers xorg-apps
The tinderbox code can also launch the generated X server and perform
checks/benchmarks against it, but I don't have easy instructions for how
to do that with a new machine yet -- if someone wants to add that to a
machine (the "construct" i686 machine does so already) let me know.
