Goodness ... the Stuff you have in your closet at PARI.

Best as I had roughed out plans for a builder some months ago, 
would be access to a console with root access, and a rebooter, 
and a side unit (a generic PC box with plenty of HD space, 
with a 'crossover cable' network to the s390, and a seperate 
interface pointing 'upstream' to reach the outside build 
master endpoint), with sufficient space to push images onto 
and to pull from

Coming in to C5 for 3 months before and a month after, I asked 
on the Marist List, and of IBM, and on the LSB calls, and 
privately, and could never get any of the people who 'needed' 
and 'wanted' s390 CentOS to return my emails.  After that, I 
gave up.
