D auto-tester
In case not everyone knows about this, Brad Roberts conceived, implemented, set 
up and maintains an automated tester that watches github for checkins, and when 
there's something new it does a complete build of dmd and phobos, then runs the 
test suite on it, and posts the results:

http://d.puremagic.com/test-results/

I think it's awesome.

Re: D auto-tester
I too think it's awesome.

Just some quick thoughts;
* Could some kind of benchmarking be integrated to track performance
aspects, especially find regressions? Perhaps a bit high on the
utility/work-scale?
* Is the script available for running offline, on some local machine,
I.E. verifying different distro:s, etc?
* 1280x1024 is too small for seeing the results. Could the view
perhaps be made slightly more compact? (Especially since OSX64 and
Win64 might be interesting targets in the near future?)
* What is "Linux 32/64" vs. "64/32"?

In any case, great stuff.

I *guess* Linux 32/64 means "32bit dmd generating 64bit binaries" and
"Linux 64/32" means "64bit dmd generating 32bit binaries".
Also note "Linux 64/64" ("64bit dmd generating 64bit binaries).

Seems like we get a native 64bit compiler for Linux. Awesome!

(But note that this is just my interpretation, maybe I'm wrong).

I agree :)

Yes, this wouldn't be of much use though, as little work is done on the 
backend, and it only tracks dmd right now. It could perhaps be forked in 
a performance branch if someone were interested in that.

Yes, it's on github I believe, see the test/ directory of dmd. The 
server/client stuff is also available elsewhere I believe.

There was a recent discussion about this, there are plans to create a 
much cleaner and more compact view.

>   * What is "Linux 32/64" vs. "64/32"?

32 bit dmd creating 64 bit binaries, 64 bit dmd creating 32 bit 
binaries. I believe you get a description if you hover over them.

Could? Yes.
Am I going to? Not likely.  If someone else does, it could be 
incorporated.

There's a link to the scripts at the bottom of the page.  They're hosted 
on github.  I've often got parts that aren't yet checked in but nothing 
that's particularly central to the testing.

See answers from the others.  But in general, sorry.  I'm catering to the 
people who are doing the primary development, and most have nice large and 
wide screens.

As indicated already, hover over each of the titles for a longer 
description of the build.

Re: D auto-tester
Awesome stuff!

One small comments. Have you thought about displaying it as a table? A
lot of words are duplicated hence wasting precious display space. The
table can look as follows:

                               Linux x86          ...
                        compile    unittest     ...
        dmd
00:00 druntime
        phobos

...

Hopefully that displays correctly...

I have a display with a 1680x1050 resolution, it fills up the whole 
screen, no more room for additional platforms without scrolling. Still 
too small?

Awesome indeed. Continuous integration is a very beneficial technique 
for software development.

My monitor is a beefy 21", but I have it set to 1152x864 because any more 
than that and all the UI elements are too small. Definitely can't fit that 
page in one screen without horizontal scrolling. Although since it's just a 
series a small tables (arranged in a table) I don't really mind the 
horizontal scrolling all that much. (Although I certainly wouldn't object to 
a less horizontally-intensive design. Not that I'm really one of the primary 
target users for it, though.)

Probably a stupid question, but 32-bit DMD can't create 64-bit binaries when 
running on a 32-bit system, can it? I assume 32-bit DMD can only create 
64-bit binaries when running on a 64-bit system, right?
