invitation: try compiling kdelibs using cmake

In addition to building kde with CMake, we have set up a KDE dashboard
at Kitware.   You can look at the most recent results here:

(note some of the warnings are incorrectly being reported as errors,
it is building with no warnings but with a few errors.)

I am going to set up a Nightly build on a debian machine here.  Also,
I will set up a continuos build for KDE.  A continuous build runs each
time a new file is checked into svn.  It has the ability to send email if
the build does not work, (i.e. someone broke the build with a commit).
Who should I put on the list of people that should get that email?
Should I put  kde-buildsystem at on the list?  

If you are interested and willing to run builds on your machine, let
me know, and I can help you set it up.  Basically, you set up a cron
job that builds the project from scratch each night.  If you want to try
an experimental build, just do this:

mkdir kdelibs-build
cd kdelibs-build
cmake ../kdelibs
make Experimental

Then click the rollup button on the dashboard, and refresh.

Also, for other dashboards you can go here to get an idea
of the type of coverage you can have for a project:
