Yes of course. Just select a buildslave (e.g. ppc or hcu3 -> and you may manually trigger it. I 
intentionally left this facility open for everybody to test it. But it would 
of course be possible to restrict it only to a few selected developers. 

If you want, I can help you to setup the master.cfg for a rtnet buildbot.

I will add one. Could you please e-mail me (privately if you want) a working 
config (ppc, no cross compiling if possible). Or do you want to add a build 
slave under your control?

There is a reset button, but then you have it running and consuming 
electricity all the times.

I would be willing to setup a buildbot for the u-boot, too, as my board boots 
with a very outdated version of u-boot.
