Could I tag something related onto this?
The "buildbot" package seems worth exploring to do multiple routine builds
from the source code management system (ours is mercurial) on a variety of
systems and environments, and to attibute new warnings and errors to
particular updates. And I think it would be possible for lots of us as
individuals, with worldwide distribution, to run slaves for such a thing.
As you'll have gathered, this is primarily about building, rather than
running. But it does (if I read it correctly) include the useful
build-time "problem X caused by update Y" functionality.
