Are there any requirements for who can smoke?
And are there any guides on how to start smoking?

All I can find is a reference in perlhack which links to

What configuration files should be used for the smoke?
As in, when looking at some smoke reports I see -Duse64bitint and  
-Duseithreads and -Duseithreads -Duse64bitint in one report and  
-Duse64bitint and -Duselongdouble and -Dusemorebits and -Duseithreads and  
-Duseithreads -Duse64bitint and -Duseithreads -Duselongdouble and  
-Duseithreads -Dusemorebits in another report...

Or is that decided/asked when running

Also, how long does a smoke - on average - take? (I suppose this depends  
on the config?)

Kind regards,
