I've been ***experimenting*** with setting up some nightly builds on 
brutus (http://wiki.apache.org/gump/NightlyBuilds,
http://wiki.apache.org/gump/BrutusConfig/NightlyBuild), using, yes, the 
latest stable jdk and the latest stable ant.

While there's some unix-based permission management to try and isolate 
these builds from gump, its probably totally insufficient. We'd have to 
implement something like SELinux I guess, and I'm certainly not up to 
doing that properly.

We can set something up for you (see 
http://wiki.apache.org/gump/BrutusConfig/RequestANightlyBuild) easily 
enough, but you shouldn't use this to replace an actually solid nightly 
build system. These are not builds you want users to use.

My main goal with the experiments is to have figured out a good way to 
set things up by the time a more trusted machine is available.

My suggestion would be that you keep things as they are, and hope the 
nightly builds machine becomes available shortly. I wouldn't be too 
happy if several projects start running tools like maven and javadoc on 
minotaur. We don't have /that/ much memory on the box.
