This is really nice. I really would like to see more use of CDash
www.cdash.org in KDE projects.

projects at Kitware, and once you have used the process for a short
time, it is hard to imagine developing software without it (Just ask
Alex). Kitware is currently hosting a CDash dashboard for kdelibs here:
