Ok, so the IA64 build is actually quite straight forward but needs a 
large disk. We just need to start the builders and make sure it can 
churn through all packages done since 5.0 - if all is well, then things 
*should* just build, since they did so upstream! and the i386/x86_64 
packages for CentOS built out of the same code base. Once we can get to 
the stage that 5.5 is at now, we can look at doing an iso set and build 

No idea how long this is going to take. I am presently moving the 5.0 + 
updates tree's into place ( the src.rpms ), once that is done we can see 
what sort of a buildrate we get per day and do some numbers from there on.

I don't want to overload dev.c.o with the output, so let me have a chat 
with Ralph and Tru and we can workout what is a good place to post this 

Ideally, it would be good to have a Failed: report that lists the issues 
encountered during the build be posted online right away. So people can 
look at it and see if anything specific needs doing. For things that do 
build, we can setup a six hourly 'sweep' that moves packages into place.

More details in a day or so.
