Never heard of DART, but I used something called STAF/STAX in the
past, and I had to struggle with tests defined in XML syntax. That's
why I shuddered when I saw this on the DART page:    "Dart has several
powerful features. These include:      * Client/Server model for
testing and reporting    * Separation of data from presentation using
XML and XSLT"    XML and XSLT...that way lies madness.      Grig

I haven't used DART either but I can say that a coder on my team was
able to implement all the custom logic needed to port our home-grown,
legacy "buildbot" to the real buildbot by creating a custom
fileIsImportant callable.  In other words, buildbot seems very
flexible to use.  It was perfect as a continuous integration tool for
our multiple test suites/projects shared in a single subversion
repository but looks like it can accomodate many other scenarios too.

Will Schroeder of Kitware pointed me towards DART2,    <a
href="http://www.na-mic.org/Wiki/index.php/Dart2Summary">http://www
.na-mic.org/Wiki/index.php/Dart2Summary</a>    and the DART manual is
apparently available here:    <a href="http://svn.na-
mic.org:8000/svn/Dart/trunk/Documentation/Manual/Dart.pdf">http://svn
.na-mic.org:8000/svn/Dart/trunk/Documentation/Manual/Dart.pdf</a>
Kumar, thanks for your comment!  Like Grig, I dislike XML on principle
and I do appreciate the extensibility of Python software in general --
I had a similar experience with nose.
