Very nice. Is that Dart or Dart2?

While we're working on the CMake build system [*], we've been relying
on Dart2 to make sure that things are going well on a couple of
platforms. Troy set up nightly regression tests on a couple of
platforms and, more importantly, continuous testing on a few
platforms. After one checks code into Subversion, the continuous
testers would pick it up, re-build and re-test as appropriate, and
post the results immediately. It is very, very nice to work with, and
we should strive to have something similar.

[*] I don't want to discuss CMake in this thread, because it will not
be productive. When we're ready, we'll start a separate thread.

Yes, the web site. From a tool perspective, we're in great shape:
updates to the website in Subversion trigger an immediate update on, so developers need only check in their changes and
they'll show up. With a bit of volunteer effort, we could easily
migrate all of the content on over to and
make it live. That would make the task of keeping the web site up-to-
date far, far easier.
