This is great, it's good to have physical machines for testing too.

Would you be willing to consider some integration with TestBot? It
isn't always immediately clear what the root cause of a failure is,
so sometimes a bit of experimentation is required. Having to
experiment by submitting official patches to wine-patches isn't
an ideal solution. If it were possible to submit patches via TestBot
then I think more people would be interested in fixing failures.

It would require WyldBOT to be available at predictable times (24x7
would be best, but I guess "during the weekend" would work too).
We'd have to find some way to exchange files and start a job on
WyldBOT in a secure way, but that seems doable.
