Well, let me add some to what you've just said, as I think it may be 
relevant ;)

To me, CruiseControl (CC for short) is just a software that at a given 
time checks a repository to see if there're new changes and invokes a 
script/build tool, afterwards (there's no limit on the number of the 
build tool execution, so if we do: maven, shell script, maven, ant it 
may be done either explicitly or via a shell script that will take care 
of it). Once the script/build invocation is done, CC merges the results 
into a nice-looking reports and can send it along to 
subscribers/developers and/or publish it online. The build artefacts may 
also be published.

There's a built-in support for Ant, Maven and a shell script.

Now, Geronimo has an bunch of scripts all of them invoked via Maven and 
it works and so will it in CC as CC invokes Maven the way people do. The 
advantage of using CC is the possibility to generate the reports without 
a human intervention.

I'd rather see Kristian to take care of "moving us that direction" as I 
don't have too much free time to work on it. However, I'm here and can 
help doing it, too.

Kristian, would that be ok for you?
