What DNS naming convention should we use for GHC buildbots?

Asked by austin on Dec 17 2014, 12:50 PM.

Currently, GHC buildbots are rather scattered and referred to by IP address for the most part, or discrete hostnames. This is uncool.

I propose that every major GHC buildbot be given a domain name, under the ghc.haskell.org domain. For example, bot01.ghc.haskell.org, bot02.ghc.haskell.org, etc etc. This way it's easier to refer to them by a DNS entry rather than an IP address.

But those names are boring, and we should pick better and totally awesome ones, based on a totally awesome naming convention. Unless we vote otherwise, of course.
