I'm certainly on the optomistic side of the equation here when it comes
to buildfarm owners.  Generally speaking, I've seen them be pretty
reasonably responsive when asked to make a change or update something,
and a lot of them are also regular PG contributors, but even those who
aren't seem to take the buildfarm seriously and I expect an email going
out to them would certainly have a majority positive response.

Thanks!
