We want to set up something broader than that.

You should go re-read what I wrote, but the recap is to start another
peer 'subproject' called 'testing' or something, from which you can
checkout a complete configuration that uses whatever we choose
(continuum right now) to do automated checkout, build and test of
everything, including end to end testing, stress testing, TCK when we
get it, etc.

Just checkout, do a minor configure, and get out of the way :)

This will allow anyone in the community to run the identical setup, on a
wider variety of platforms than ever possible to host at the ASF, etc.

We'll still eventually get something going at the ASF that uses this,
but the focus should be on the configuration, rather than the place
where it is done.

I'd then guess we'd have all those machine reporting breakage, and keep
a tally of the OS version, platforms, etc that people are using to test.

While I'm sure we'll be doing some builds here, I'd like to "spin the
perspective" so that we get a 'testing community' started around a
common configuration.

I don't remember.  I can look it up, but this seems to be a losing
proposition.  Maybe the solution is to copy the result file to a
directory somewhere on people.apache.org and send a pointer or osmething..
