I think many of these suggestions are good. I do expect that they
require heavy additional building in OBS and we might need extra
hardware to be able to do this... That SSD discussion might have
been more important than we thought :D

It might also be interesting to think about ways for the community to
contribute resources in the grid-computing style of GIMPS, BOINC,
Seti@home, protein folding etc.

My understanding is that the OBS can utilize Amazon compute and disk
resources to act as worker nodes.

One option might be:
Would people consider donating to a "pool" if that pool were used to
pay for amazon/whatever worker nodes to help out the OBS?

Personally speaking, no. I have however spare hardware/computing
resources on running systems that I can contribute.

As far as I can tell, building openSUSE is an embarrasingly parallel
problem, perfect for a distributed approach.
