Cool info.

But I seriously thought this was a spam message the first 3 times I read it.

Subject exotic - check
link - check
1 sentence body - check

This is somewhat ridiculous. Exotic is HP-UX or AIX, but CentOS, Solaris
and *BSD are mainstream.

Consider that we invest our free/work time to make this project better I
see no reason to add hardware at my expense. In fact, most companies
(including mine) wouldn't even be able to provide nodes because company
network is behind a VPN.

Huh, the link is bad on the page. I guess nuderscores are exotic too.

https://git-wip-us.apache.org/repos/asf?p=infrastructure-puppet.git;a=blob<i>plain;f=modules/build</i>slaves/files/jenkins.pub;hb=HEAD

Should be:

https://git-wip-us.apache.org/repos/asf?p=infrastructure-puppet.git;a=blob_plain;f=modules/build_slaves/files/jenkins.pub;hb=HEAD

Don't be shooting the messenger!

I'm suspecting that it would be a case of sponsoring a node on AWS or rack
space or Google's cloud.

That would have a static IP, could be isolated from any corporate networks
and there you go!

But anyway, this is more that there is a route available... that the route
is rather torturous and full of hazards is a different story... previously
we thought there was not route.

Another thing we could do is - as a project - ask for budget to run such
nodes ourselves. No guarantee the board would approve, but if it is
important to the project, maybe we should ask?

Not my intention.

Infra has tens of Ubuntu nodes, it wouldn't harm to convert to something
else a few ones.

It is worth a try.
