Thanks Rene, Wido and Rajani for the feedback.

Once we can have the system working as we wanted, we will publish wiki/docs on how we can
collaboratively setup our own test environments that can be used in some federated way to
distribute build-test load. Trillian is already open and our current infra uses the same repo
(i.e. there is no secrets or fork) as anyone else can: https://github.com/shapeblue/Trillian

For now, I've added a restriction to allow only our RMs to build packages etc. The build bot
and its background infra is an experiment, and likely to change its vocabulary as well.

Regards.
