Not that I want to undermine Martin's efforts, but I wonder if we
should start by taking some more boards into account for arm64, too:

* Raspberry Pi 3 now works also with arm64:
  (Serial console only as of now, but that should be ok-ish for a
  reproducible builds node.)

* Odroid C2 works fine with arm64, too. Not sure what's needed to get
  all kernel modifications upstreamed:

I could imagine providing the hardware and hosting for a few such
devices. (Maybe in addition to the hopefully somewhen arriving LeMaker
Cello boards.)


I'm aware of the connectivity requirements, but wrt. Raspberry Pi 3
and Odroid C2 I wonder about disk space and speed requirements. Would
e.g. a Class 10 UHS-1 8 GB microSD card suffice?


Or are the probably faster but also more expensive eMMC devices


Or is even some real hard disk or SSD needed?

As a power supply e.g. this one might suffice:
