Are you aware of http://www.python.org/dev/buildbot/ ?
Yes. And it does not seem to be open for all, but then again, any documentation with regard to it seems to be very sparse or hidden so I can very well be wrong here. Ah, hidden away on the wiki: http://wiki.python.org/moin/BuildBot
We are not just talking about buildbots here (which the links you refer to seem to be); we are talking about buildbots that don't test Python, but test Python applications.
Then I would dare to say you haven't fully investigated the links fully, Bitten, for example, also runs the unit-tests for any target you configure, saves all the outputs and provides quick overviews as well as coverage statistics. So that would fall perfectly into that category. See http://bitten.cmlenz.net/build/0.5.x/762 for an example.
We do know how to run a buildbot.
How relevant was this comment in the entire? I am merely trying to help out here pointing out other similar projects when the community participating building issue was raised.
