[Mono-devel-list] Automated builds

Would it be possible to include the unit tests from other OS projects, like
NAnt, NUnit, NDoc and run them on a regular basis against mono/cvs?

NAnt has extensive unit tests base and makes use of many advanced .NET
features and it's designed to be portable (i.e. aware of slash-vs-backslash
issues and so on). This makes NAnt quite good at Mono regression testing. I
don't know about other tools but their unit tests should be runnable on
mono, too.

Recently we've reached a stage where nant is able to rebuild itself on
mono/linux and it would be a good idea not to lose it because of some mono
regression (like AppDomain.Unload which we had recently).

What do you think?
