I was hoping someone else would have a suggestion. If you run the
tests via the scripts they'll spit out Jenkins/Hudson XML files.
They're annoying to read in that form, but it's better than nothing at

At present I have to trigger the build manually. I usually run them as
soon as I see trunk commits. Maybe I should start replying to those as
soon as I've run the build, and then you and the other volunteers know
when to grab a new image?
