tests.reproducible-builds.org
-----------------------

Reproducible Debian:

- With thanks to [Profitbricks](https://www.Profitbricks.com) continued
  sponsorship, Holger setup two new amd64 build nodes (and the associated
  Jenkins jobs) with 15/16 cores and 48GB RAM each for a total of four such
  amd64 nodes to double the build capacity of our amd64 build network.


Misc.
-----

Also with thanks to Profitbricks sponsoring the "hardware" resources, Holger
created a 13 core machine with 24GB RAM and 100GB SSD based storage so that
Ximin can do further tests and development on GCC and other software on a fast
machine.

This week's edition was written by Chris Lamb, Ximin Luo, Vagrant Cascadian, Holger Levsen and
reviewed by a bunch of Reproducible Builds folks on IRC.
