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 [1] - 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.
