I can cover for OS/X and Solaris 8 (both X86 and SPARC). That's all I have
access to ATM (my flatmate's Linux box is a happily hand-tuned llama slow
Debian box, basically impossible to compile whatever on it)

J-F uses a couple of whacko ;) systems, and something else (???)

Henri is building RPMs for WebApp already, and since it's another dialect of
a pseudo POSIX-compliant OS, things should work there as well, and it's
pretty easy to provide fixes when he tries to build the thing.

I used to have an HP-UX box as well, but the power supply died last week,
and the cost to replace that was much more than the value of the box itself,
so it just ended up in the bin with my kitty litter last week... I know that
Covalent has some HP-UX boxes, if they want to put them on-line, it might be
good (since I was hosting HP-UX for the entire Apache community)

Apart from that, if someone wants to do some Windows porting, he's more than
welcome to volunteer (as you are well-aware of, it's kinda impossible to run
MSVC from remote, you _have_ to have a console. The only alternative would
be someone providing a Wintel PC with a valid license of MSVC and an SSH
server to do builds on, although it might get nasty when you think about
doing all those NMAKE files)...
