The 4 buildds aahz, arrakis, elgar and kullervo were each #Amiga with MC68060, 128 MB RAM and sometimes SCSI (arrakis, aahz & kullervo).
Kullervo was the very first autobuilder of Debian in history (AFAIK).
I joined kullervo with arrakis approx. in March 2000. Back then kullervo had a backlog of maybe 2000 packages. And it also hosted the first version of what later became buildd.net.
It consisted of some Rexx and bash scripts.
I operated buildd.net until approx. 2015. The project became too complex with all of its scripts and needed a redesign.
I also operated several Debian autobuilders for the m68k port, without being an official DD, which was something "special" back then and wouldn't be possible today, I think.
I still think that buildd.net was unique and a benefit for the Debian project.
That's some small part of #mystory in Open Source Software and Debian in particular.
What's your #mystory?
