I really don't get this. Is this really the changes the Social Contract
is talking about? Has it ever occured to you that Emulatorman wanted to
buy and even pay for this himself for the benefit of the whole community
and Parabola? OK, so let's say that I'm in the future want to port some
games from Lua (or whatever) to C, or even want to do some kernels, and I buy
myself a server or whatever. Is that really the changes that falls under
the Social Contract? Shouldn't the community be happy that I have some
up-to-date devices to maintain Parabola? So what if there were some
talking about this? What harm does it do to the community that the guy
doing all the maintaining wishes himself a build server?

It's like someone has commited a huge crime for talking to eachother
about how this could come true.

Well, as far as I know, those guys (g4jc, Emulatorman) with some direct
donations from others as well made this come true by themselves, so
technically the build server is now not owned by Parabola nor the community.
So if Emulatorman want to use this build server for Parabola or not, is
really up to him. I would guess 'no', after all the shit he and others as
to put up  with, and the resistance they have  met from the very beginning
of this process. The build server could have benifited Parabola, but the
