I am not clear about what is being proposed. Currently buildfarm syncs
against (or pulls a fresh copy from, depending on configuration) either
the main anoncvs repo or a mirror (which you can get using cvsup or rsync,
among other mechanisms). I can imagine a mechanism in which we pull
certain patches from a patch server (maybe using an RSS feed, or a SOAP
call?) which could be applied before the run. I wouldn't want to couple
things much more closely than that.

The patches would need to be vetted first, or no sane buildfarm owner will
want to use them.
