Not sure what you mean about mailman - maybe the Enthought servers we didn't have access to? For buildbot, I've been maintaining about 12 crappy old machines for about 7 years now  - I'm happy to do the same job for a couple of properly hosted PPC machines. At least we'd have some way of testing for these machines, if we get stuck - even if that involved spinning up a VM and installing the stuff we needed from the command line.
