Surely Canonical have a CI farm for their strategic products? (Of which
Bazaar is clearly one.)

I think what this really shows more than anything is that Bazaar (and
indeed all Canonical-driven projects) needs a complete set of CI servers
that everyone knows about:

	Linux 32-bit (presumably Ubuntu)
	Linux 64-bit (presumably Ubuntu)
	Mac OS X 32-bit
	Mac OS X 64-bit
	Solaris 10 32-bit
	Solaris 10 64-bit
	Windows 32-bit
	WIndows 64-bit

It sounds as though if it exists, members of the core Bazaar team are
not aware of it.  If it doesn't exist then it should, can I suggest by
next week.  (If Canonical cannot afford to go out and buy 8 machines and
create a Buildbot farm to support their strategic products then it is
time to think of bailing -- no CI, no confidence.)

(Apologies if there is such a farm already, then the moral is, it needs
greater publicity.)
