committers: do you use dromedary?
Message ID:
Once upon a time, a sponsor provided a server called dromedary.  It was a big beefy hunky of hardware with a lot of RAM and a bunch of cores.  It compiled perl very fast.  Some people used it for bisecting, some for testing a bunch of different versions of perl, and so on.

Later, a second dromedary existed and was used, but less.

I've been trying to get a handle on the various resources we rely on, and dromedary has come up.  If there's to be a third iteration of this box:  *Who will use it and for what?*

I guess I'd start off thinking it's like the old one:  used by committers as a powerful place to do a lot of compiling and testing.  But is that right?  If you are a committer and would (or would not!) use it, please say so, and let me know what you'd be using it for.  (What else we might use a bunch of compute for is another question.  This is more about a box where you'd have a shell.)
