works yet. It has been deployed in production though (twistedmatrix.com
is largely hosted on pypy+twisted).

That would be useful. We currently do have a buildslave running tests
against pypy, but we are looking at decomissioning it.
The buildbot takes care of installing new versions of pypy (on a weekly
I'll need the follwing information from you (offlist):

This will show up on http://buildbot.twistedmatrix.com/buildslaves
This is sent cleartext.
3. Email address
This is used to send mail messages when the slave disappears. It
