Sorry, had no time to try or even look at it yet :-(

My Linux build still runs on a simple shell script, my Windows/mingw build 
died two weeks ago after what looked like an attempt by emerge to update the 
compiler, need to find time to update that to use the built-in cdash 
reporting of emerge anyway. My Maemo builds never really got started due to 
still unsolved VM issues with our new build server (Patrick, are you reading 
this? ;-) ).

But there is one good news as well, Björn Ricks from Intevation is working on 
integrating cdash reporting into their continuous Debian and Maemo package 
building process for the KDE PIM stack. We managed to solve the remaining 
issues last friday I think [1], so this should hopefully go live next week. It 
would eventually cover stable branches of kdelibs and kdebase-runtime as well 
as latest trunk of akonadi, kdepimlibs and kdepim, both for the desktop and 
mobile profiles.


[1] It would be nice if it would be possible to pass additional arguments to 
ctest when using e.g. make Experimental in some way. In our case we needed to 
add "-V" since the existing package build process around all that expected 
full compiler output and only allowed to easily specify a make target, not an 
entirely different command (ie. ctest instead of make). Our workaround is to 
add a custom target similar to Experimental with the arguments we need.
