I'm looking for people who are interested in providing Nightly builds of KDE 4 
svn trunk for Solaris.
Recently we set up cdash dashboards for several KDE modules (kdesupport, 
kdelibs, kdebase, kdepimlibs, kdepim, kdenetwork, kdeadmin, 
kdeaccessibility , kdeexamples) on http://my.cdash.org.

The idea is to build KDE every night on different machines and operating 
systems to make sure it stays building everywhere.
If something breaks, notification emails with the errors can be sent, e.g. to 
this list or to the committers.

Until now only me and Volker Krause are providing Nightly builds there, and 
both on Linux. Now most KDE developers are using Linux, so having Nightly 
builds on non-Linux systems is actually even more important.

So, is anybody here interested to run a Nightly build of KDE on Solaris once 
per day ?

I still have to document this somewhere, probably on techbase, on how to get 
this working.
Short version: check out kdesdk/, there in cmake/scripts/ is a shell script 
Nightlys-2.6.2, which is the shell script which drives the Nightly build on 
my machine. If you open it, the places which have to be changed should be 
obvious, i.e. the path to cmake, setting CMAKE_PREFIX_PATH, and not that much 

So, if you are interested, please let me know and I'll help with setting it 
The first step should probably be that you head over to my.cdash.org and get 
yourself an account there.
