Have you ever tried to implement a buildsystem?

In practice, besides finding HW and bandwidth, the items above are the
real issues any project is being confronted with.

For contributors, using a unified infrastructure to some extend is
convenience. A lack of convenience imposing barriers and burdens on
users, which cause them to stay away from them.

without a unified infrastructure.
