We are waiting on infrastructure.   There seems to be a hardware issue 
on the Mac buildbot.
Otherwise we are waiting in the queue.  There has been some work done on 
the Windows buildbot.
In addition, I believe we have the 'recipe' for building each of the 
platforms complete (and Solaris, too)
All of these have been requested, and acknowledged, although until 
lately infra has been more focused on other AOO priorities.
Added note: Gavin has been out - he is the buildbot guru, and will 
probably be the one working on it.  Hopefully this is reasonably high on 
the list of things to do.

Once the buildbots are in place, we can control the specifics of each 
build fairly easily.  I also have some ideas in this area, in terms of 
varying the builds (and potentially creating a weekly dev snapshot 
build)   Also, note that this bots are part of a pretty big system of 
automated bots, and that setting them up is more complex than just 
standing up a vm with an OS image.

We can ping infra for this.

Once we have the buildbots in place this will be more under our control.
