We believe all of the EWS bots are back and have (barely) enough
capacity to keep up with the project.

Port maintainers interested in setting up another ews instance for
their port (to help make sure no one breaks it!) need only look at:


Basically starting another EWS instance is as easy as running
"webkit-patch win-ews" (or gtk-ews, qt-ews, or whatever your port is).

Eventually I may put up a wiki page on the subject.
