[mapguide-internals] Build Server - CruiseControl?

I had a lock at the build server and I am offering to set up cruise 
control NET on this machine to run builds and show which build numbers 
I have been using this previously in a distributed project team and I 
believe CI is pretty much the state of the art.
(Why cruisecontrol? Its mature and sourceforged and I know it so I can 
set it up!)

Cruisecontrol can be tuned in terms of the conditions when to run the build.
The results of those builds are available on a dashboard page on a web 
server and as a tray icon on the users machine. (needs an open port)

Furthermore I can imagine an upload page which could be used to upload a 
patch to the server thereby triggering
the checkout of the last revision, applying the patch and running a 
build thereafter, reporting the results to the dashboard.

Any Comments?
