Describing the adventures building a build network of armhf machines
to run reproducibility tests, using a variety of readily available
consumer-grade boards to increase possible reproducibility problems
due to hardware differences.

I will endeavor to explain how it grew from a few cute machines into a
(still a bit slow) monster. Rumours will be spread of other monsters
lurking on the horizon.

Comes complete with Colored Charts, Documented Side Effects, Power
Consumption and Bandwidth figures, and 5-12 volt tentacle
(mis)management, and perhaps most importantly, advice on avoiding (or
falling prone to) the same fate yourself.
