Kitware is building (and using) CDash, which integrates directly with CTest:

Like Bitten, the CDash interface is totally wrong for a collection of
libraries like Boost. We would have to do some serious interface
upgrades either way.

If Bitten doesn't work out, CDash is an alternative. I've done local
setups of CDash with Boost-CMake submitting to it and it was
relatively painless. But, I don't want to seriously propose it as an
alternative until I've done a significant amount of work to improve
the interface, because I *hate* when people throw out software
suggestions without doing any work themselves :)
