We already have plans to move the lookaside cache to the netapp.  at least 
that was the last plan i was aware of.

xenbuilder1 and hammer2 are the oldest boxes we have in the buildsystem.  
closely followed by ppc1  xenbuilder2 is also quite an old box now.  im 
cleaning up /var/lib/mock on xenbuilder2 now.  failed builds dont get cleaned 
up automatically.  we probably should reap them more often.
