Hi Jimmy,

sorry, I hit "send" prematurely...

Seems possible, as most workers are running chroot builds, where there
are no guaranteed resources, and hence builds with contraints are not
scheduled to build. ATM only swkj11-swkj14 are workers building in KVM,
and all but 11 had a configuration problem throughout October - so
nothing was built there. They are fixed now.

swkj11 has 1897MB RAM available for build, swkj12-14 have 1950MB. A
_constraint file requesting more than these values will block the
package from being scheduled to build.

As mentioned some days ago, I was able to secure some more hardware,
and am currently - as time permits - in the phase to repair and enable
it for use - just Yesterday evening I was able to restart the workers
15-19 (virtual machines doing chroot builds), which before were running
on old desktops, which I have to return to their proposed use soon.
There is a test machine swkjt01 currently providing 4 processes in KVM,
but providing 1GB RAM, only.

I have some more machines, and provided I can fix them, I will at least
one of them configure to run with more than 2 GB instance memory.

As said, as time permits, perhaps over the weekend.
