That would be great.  Let me know how I can help.  For CMake, I have 
some standard ctest scripts that can be used to build and submit a 
dashboard for CMake.   I ask people to setup a cronjob and run them.  If 
you minimize the amount of work that has to be done, it helps get more 
people to volunteer client machines to run builds.
