As someone who's broken the Mac build on a few occasions I think this will be 
very useful :-)  I had thought about approaching the KDE eV to fund a build 
server but the problem was finding someone to build and run it.  I guess yours 
will only be a nightly build, otherwise it could get a bit cpu intensive?  

One reason for having our own build server would be the ability for KDE devs 
to log in and build development branches so we can test patches don't break 
build _before _ we push to master (I do have a Mac, but rebooting to test is 
such a pain :-).  If you can think of a way to do that on your server it would 
be brilliant.
