I know of buildbot but i think it has a different focus. 
It works with a central installation and it targets more general
build processes whereas we would probably focus on detailed python 
testing and have it peer-driven so that everyone can contribute to
gather information (which does obviously not exclude having servers 
which do it on a regular basis via cron or are triggered by 
svn-notification emails).
