jenkins.d.o won't build anything but only keep the master node (without
builders, or maybe one or two to do maintenance stuff).

If what you would like to do is to "just" rebuild all rdeps, that's
really one of the thing I'd really like to do, it just takes time do all
the work (and atm I'm busy doing other stuff, if that wasn't clear) :)

To be precise, what I plan is to really improve the current
reproducible.d.n scripts and base everything on them.
I'd like to support both rebuilds on a modified toolchain on demand and
on all r-deps of a particular packages which uploads would act as a
It just takes a shitload of time I don't currently have, as usual.
Currently there are means to ask for rebuild of stuff using a particular
packages (through the AWS credit, managed by lucas &
I-don't-remember-who), but to me it looks like it's not really used if
not for big packages (like, before gcc uploads), and the results are
somewhat difficult to access and understand and often used by a single
person, which sucks.
