As I promised to keep the list informed about that, here are the latest
news :

Hardware has been fixed completely last friday, and "stress tested"
during the week-end. As it was working fine, I decide to put back the
Koji/CBS workload back on the fixed node.
That also means that we are now back at full capacity (2 builders per
arch, instead of just one, running in/from a different
environment/setup) so that should speed up your builds if you build for
ppc64/ppc64le at the same time as for other arches.
