tbm will give us something like 4 cello boards (iirc), but it will take some months as they are only scheduled in the 2nd quarter of 2016. These are to be hosted at Xtaran. For those we will need to get SSDs too, so leaving some funds for that would be useful. And then some company also has offered us (privately to me so far) some moonshot cartriges (which are 8 core, 64gb ram systems, each), but it's also not clear when we get access to them. (The company will host them for us.) Once we get them, we can _probably_ build armel, armhf and arm64 on those, but I might be wrong here. And it might take some time. If/when this moonshot hardware becomes reality your armhf build network will still be useful, as we then can keep it for hw diversity. Until then, I'm not convinced we should invest in arm64 hardware (+testing), but rather improve the armhf setup. long story short: if you think more/different hw is useful in your setup, go and use the funds for it. It might take some more months til we can test arm64 and the armhf build network IMO is still too slow. -- cheers, Holger
