At bug:83334, I reported a problem with KOffice Part application template.

It would be nice if KOffice had an automated (or at least mostly-automated) system to test that all application templates will install, configure, build and ideally run. This would help to prevent regressions.

I imagine a DCOP based script that iterates through each template, creating a project that uses that template, running automake & friends / qmake / whatever as appropriate and checking that it builds.  The script might need some priming to know what is the correct action for each project, or it might be able to tell from the project file/files.
