Hi Holger,

We are working together with MIPS to update and maintain the MIPS port of
Webkit. We are setting up a buildbot slave to be integrated with
build.webkit.org. First, it will use qemu emulation to run the on-target
tests. However, this is only a temporary measure until we get at least one
board dedicated to this purpose, then our slave will also execute tests on
actual hardware.

It is our current plan to have the initial qemu-only slave set up by next
week. Should we contact you directly or someone else to get the slave
integrated with build.webkit.org?

Would this be acceptable for you?

Best Regards,
