That certainly happens from time to time - projects are begun and
never finished.  I don't recall the specific case, and you haven't
provided a pointer to the archives.  Was there code produced?  Is it
in a sufficiently workable state that you could finish it off,
document it, and write tests for it?

You may want to consider the security implications.  Mailing lists are
not authenticated, so depending on how your Buildbot is configured,
you may be offering to run arbitrary code on your build systems.
