Subject: [gentoo-project] woodpecker.gentoo.org outage post-mortem & request for somebody to package kdump

woodpecker was briefly unavailable again (2017/01/04 06:40-07:10 UTC),
and was freshly booted to recover, as the VM host threw a kernel panic
again (it's happened about once a month now, on 2 different boxes).

I did have network console logging enabled on the VM host, but it didn't
capture anything except the very start of the crash.

Can somebody with time please package the Redhat/Ubuntu kdump tools, so
that they can be used when the crashkernel boots (that side is already
done on infra systems as well).

You probably also want to improve this page:
