I've got two Dell Optiplexs just sitting around doing pretty much
nothing.  I forget the version number at the moment, but do we want a
Hurd CI running the Hurd?  Or do we want the CI running GNU/Linux?

I would like to put one or two of those machines to good use.  I suppose
that I would need the adapter for the keyboard and mouse.  Or just buy
a really old keyboard/mouse.
