@glynmoody There's also a ton of things the EU could do without paying developers directly. Paying for a ton of CI servers would be big step forward, I bet.

@glynmoody I mean, the EU already has several now-obsolete supercomputers that are still working hardware that a CI system could put to good use.

Biggest problems I have in putting old HPC hardware into useful build or CI servers is what project to attach them to, and that they usually need more IOPS than a single slow spinning disk can provide.
