	Hi Stefan, hi Brian,

The existing, simple one integrates into the Trac UI, to show the current status 
of the build farm integrated into Trac. I was primarily interested in simple 
things, like being able to access the changesets that triggered a build to be 
linked to the trac changeset etc.

Brian has some more elaborate plans here...

Some nice ideas here! The patch testing is interesting, something I hadn't 
really thought about.

Looking forward to playing with it.
