True, but we loose access to /home/slitaz in the process; godane backed
packages & sources on a daily basis so he was able to recreate a
cooking environment - loosing it was essentially the cause of my
angryness, now I feel better; but we don't have backup for cooklogs. Few
days ago you asked for mirroring the packages on, but
actually we can't sync with it. So, back to the previous situation:
mirror on godane people account.

About the positive side: we can play in a system based on thoses
"not-so-experimental" packages... The tool itself is maybe
(less and less) experimental but the current cooking wok provide pretty
stable packages.

Sure I did, and I can do it again: thanks you all for theses amazing
piece of code & docs you released & release. That's free :)

Working ISO based on current wok, cooked using tazwok-experimental &
tazlito exists, I'm pretty sure that we can release RC or something like
that this week based on current experimental status. 

To resume the stuff we need, if possible:
* A copy of the cooklogs from /home/slitaz/experimental/log
* Possibility to send packages & iso to
* Please link /home/slitaz/chroot/var/www/vhosts/bb
to /var/www/vhosts/bb/experimental to make me able to make a php
buildbot interface reachable from internet at I'm currently working on this
interface and will need help from a php expert to make it able to
support several repositories at a same time (not just cooking/stable;
the goal is open the possibility to add support for
undigest/backport/wok-tiny repositories easily; the list of $version
avaible is stored in a file).

About cronjob to cook packages: actually we are the cookbot, a bot
command will be added soon into tazwok-experimental to perform
automatically all maintaining tasks (get commits, cook commits &
missing, update repository, optionnaly update mirror).
