There's been some discussion of this recently.  The current
metabuildbot is hosted on Brian's systems, to which I don't have
access just yet.  I would *love* to have you set this up, particularly
if it's configured in some publicly-accessible fashion, and allows
others to submit buildslaves.

I don't think SourceForge can host a long-running daemon like this, so
I imagine that someone will need to host the buildmaster.  I can do
this on my systems, but those are behind a cable modem and thus not
terribly reliable.  If someone has a bit of business bandwidth to
share for the purpose, that would be better.

We should probably set up a CNAME that the buildslaves connect to, so
that if we must move the master to another host, the buildslaves need
not be reconfigured (just restarted).  I think Brian can allocate a
subdomain of buildbot.net to this purpose.

The buildbot should watch the github repository, and preferably only
the 'master' branch (and maybe 'one-oh').  Let's also put the
configuration in a branch on github.
