This is already done....
An example can be found here in the Trilinos dashboard:
Trilinos is one big project with lots of sub-projects. The sub-projects
can be described either in the CDash GUI, or in an XML file that can be

It has just been finished and there is not good documentation yet, but I
will try to get some up soon.
