Don't forget that there is a trial up and running on

This is a Jenkins installation that is currently triggered by the commit hooks 
and do continious build + test of kdelibs (KDE/4.7), kde-runtime (master), 
kdepimlibs (master), kdepim (master) and kdepim-runtime (master).

The plan is to expand this to all (former) modules and atleast the stable and 
master branches.

Any feedback regarding this site would be appreciated.
