The donation is intended for Emulatorman (since he is currently the one
maintaining kernels and has access to fiber). Assuming that Emulatorman
remains with Parabola (current consensus seems that way), it will
benefit Parabola which still is the intention.

Since it will be shipping within the US the shipping does not equal $400
USD. It should cost < $300.

In any case, it is my understanding that the money is temporarily
'frozen' until a new sponsor is found. So, I will pay for the shipping.

It would be nice, but I assume this is something that can be bought
locally. It may also be possible to buy a used one and replace the
battery at a reduced cost.

All core developers should have access to the build server, but I am not
sure that everyone needs sudo. It may be possible to simply "queue" jobs
for the server to do.

I know lukeshu has some good ideas on this, so I like forward to seeing
what he may have in mind. It may also be useful to have an audit log of
commands which are run on the server and by whom to avoid confusion and
increase transparency.
