We'd love to do something like this -- in fact, we've discussed doing
daily builds-- but the problem is twofold:
1) For many of our ports, we can't even manage to complete a build in
one week. Sun-3's are not exactly speed demons. To do these ports
properly, we have to have cross compilation working better.
2) Currently, we have a bit of a disk shortage on our FTP site. This
will probably be corrected.
