I can and want give a hand here. I am somewhat experienced with 
Scratchbox1 and I have also helped with packaging related tasks in 
previous occasions. 

In my opinion, having the current autobuilder replaced is basically a 
must, as I don't think anyone maintains the current arcane toolchains 
there. Someday there will be another sbox/glibc/kernel breakage and by 
then all the Scratchbox gurus will have left for greener pastures, leaving 
no one to fix it.

I would even try to move Chinook targets to it, so that the older 
autobuilder can be entirely "decommissioned" and its machines used as OBS 
workers. Unless someone complains of course... or it turns out to be 
astonishingly hard.

Sadly, the problem is that my time is limited (otherwise I'd be running 
for Council :) ). I hope to at least be able to give this a pair of hours 
weekly though.

In any case, I am attending the next council meeting (on the 17th). See 
you there!
