I'm happy to get everything setup but I need to know what we want. My first thoughts were to have lots of VMs on the big build box we've got, bring the VMs up and down when needed and compile HEAD, RE24 periodically, but that smoke testing would just make noise. 

We'll need a frontend to browse results anyway and maybe an admin panel to issue builds or just some admin commandline tools for pre-release testing. E-mails could go to a new openldap-builds@openldap.org list or similar. We'll also need a tool for users to register their system/host with the build master to collect results and show them.
