The setup is fairly simple, the easiest/fastest way to toy around with a
simple rebuilderd setup is:

- Pull the archlinux vagrant image and ssh into it
- Run pacman -S rebuilderd
- Follow the instructions on

I'd recommend going for a single machine setup first (everything should
work of the box, basically) and extend it to a multi-machine setup
afterwards (basically just configuring nginx in front for https and
configuring secrets).

If you run into any issues (or anybody else reading this list), you are
welcome to ask questions in #archlinux-reproducible on freenode (pretty
much all rebuilderd users hang out there right now).

The second part is integrating it into the existing deployment tooling
for r-b infrastructure, I think h01ger can help answering any questions
there. :)

Note that Arch Linux is currently the only supported distro, but a
rebuilderd instance is theoretically able to track multiple distros at
the same time.
