Slightly off topic but I thought the following was interesting. http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/homebrew/brew-test-bot
It's a kickstarter for the homebrew project  to set themselves up with some automated test/build equipment (i.e some Mac Minis with VMs). It'll provide automated feedback to people who submit pull-requests, making the developers job a little easier. Planning to launch it in April.
The kickstarter opened today today and by the time you see this, will probably have (far) exceeded their goal. Since I haven't seen any homebrew 'donate' buttons anywhere before this may release some pent up appreciation. Crowd funding the machine pool is also an interesting idea.
