[opensuse-buildservice] May open build service be used to build Whonix (debian derivative) VM images?

Whonix [1] is a derivative of Debian.

Its VM build script needs:

- mount (device-mapper), but I guess that would not be a problem, since
open build service is based on KVM?

- sudo (not just fakeroot) - is it available?

- quite some load (hdd load, traffic load [downloading packages from
debian repositories], build time [takes some time to create a whole vm
image] - would that be a problem? Your servers are accustomed to
building SUSE vm images, but as far I understand its architecture is a
bit different and you might be using packaging caches and such.

Using open build service as a CI service that is capable of building VM
images would be very helpful to Whonix!

What do you think? Would Whonix VM builds be welcome on open build
service servers?
