Well, bandwidth is not the problem, all machines are in an local network.

I already had the idea to put everything into one archive and upload it,
but I have no idea how to unpack it. The build is working on the slave
and after uploading the archive, I have it on the master. Do you use a
cronjob or something like this on the master to unpack it? Or I'm
missing some buildstep?
