Your assertion is correct here Richard. I'm one of the folks formerly behind
the scenes of Hudson, now Jenkins. The primary build infra and portions of the
distribution network have all been community donated, along with the hardware
colocated that I currently foot the bill for (oof!).
When the decision to become Jenkins as final, most of the mirror operators and
folks who donated slaves proactively contacted me about adjusting the
contributions to continue to support Jenkins.
Hudson has plenty of infrastructure already, I think a lot of the belly-aching
has more to do with some of the scripts and release management tools which
uses, which can be a bit confusing/painful to the uninitiated.

They were likely all there, just not yet needed. One of the motivators to move
to more community oriented infrastructure was that with KK's departure from
Oracle, gaining root/admin access to certain pieces of hardware became more
difficult, understandably so.
