Thanks, Rene! This should be a big help.

there is one requirement (currently): it only supports getting code from
SVN. This *might* change when we can get the tarball working again, but
I didn't bother at the moment as it's impossible to test it :-( For now
here are some short docs on what to do, while I write up some longer docs:

Shouldn't the default be 'regression'?
I'm running branch/release tests now with the command set to
'regression' and it seems to be working.
