Well, good ideas are thought of twice :)

I am making quarters in python, also I wanted to make it so the the builds
could be distributed, it would be difficult and impractical to have a
continuous build system rebuilding all packages over and over again on just
one box.

I have just been trying to figure out how to make it simple enough for arch,
so no databases, communication systems are all built in so no setting up
crazy deps etc.

But I will look at your absbb, I will most likely be able to garner some

Thanks for the vote!
