You're not understanding what I'm saying. To run KDevelops and
KDevPlatforms tests its currently totally sufficient to simply build them
and then run ctest. We currently don't need anything but that and CDash has
a lot more to offer, which we just don't need right now. Hence its
"useless" features for us right now.

That depends on what the server does, and the machine I'm sparing here to
do the build+test is my desktop workmachine which has neither of the two

If you want to find a server to setup CDash on, thats fine with me, I'll
make sure I send my builds over. But setting up CDash on my workmachine,
just to run the tests for our two modules is simply wasted time IMHO.

And who will fix the errors if there are any? Most of the time its nothing
simple, so you need someone with a windows system that can build kdevelop
and a good bunch of MSVC knowledge to find and fix the error.

If nobody fixes the found problems its pretty much wasted time/energy to do
automated builds/tests. Thats why koffice has no test-runs anymore - nobody
