[fdo-internals] Hosting FDO 3.5 builds / Binaries for CentOS

Yes. I was planning to publish all the FDO builds required for MapGuide. This would include 32 and 64 bit binaries for Windows and Linux. The build machines would be accessible via remote desktop and ssh. We already have a small group of build/install maintainers for MapGuide and I would be happy to add anyone who wants to help out with FDO.
I am in the process of getting the software licensing figured out for the builds and will be creating new virtual machines over the next couple of weeks. All of the machines will be hosted on a private subnet and exposed through a virtual IP address. Since there will be quite a few VMs to orchestrate, I will also be looking into BuildBot and setting up a local Subversion proxy to reduce the load on OSGeo.

I think I can speak for the PSC and state that this would be a great idea. Are you looking to publish both Windows and Linux builds?

I am a member of the MapGuide Open Source PSC and responsible for the build infrastructure for MGOS. We are currently looking at revamping the build infrastructure for the MapGuide 2.2 release. Since MapGuide depends closely on FDO, we may be able to make better use of the build VMs by using them to build FDO as well.
Since I am already hosting the MapGuide builds, hosting the FDO builds on the same VMs would not cost me (or the FDO project) anything. Regular FDO builds (nightly/weekly) can be accommodated. Builds intended for general community use would have to be posted to the OSGeo download site since I do not have unlimited bandwidth.
Moving the FDO builds to community managed infrastructure may provide faster turnaround on FDO releases and get the FDO community more involved in the project.
In addition to the builds, I was unable to find any build scripts in the FDO repository for creating CentOS rpms or Ubuntu debs. I am currently investigating binary packaging for FDO and will be able to contribute deb and rpm creation scripts to the project if they do not already exist.
Does this sound like an endeavour that the FDO PSC would like to pursue?
