Support for testing on more architectures is something we want.

We are also looking at buildbot currently. This would be to replace the
official builder LXC hosts with buildbot running the build job in
chroot. The recent 'abuild rootbld' commits are for this purpose.

Ideally our official builders could do the CI for GitHub and
PatchWorks, but that's still a way to go. Perhaps Jenkins could be
interim solution? Or you think we should concentrate to get the buildbot
setup up and running?
