Hi Maik,

You are correct, any client can be used to send the XML files to CDash.
We have kept the same XML description as Dart and we certainly plan to 
put a full description in the documentation.

Regarding the client, we don't have current plans to write a client 
using ant. Note that CDash (submit.php) expects the XML files to be 
submitted via HTTP PUT, so basically any clients that are supporting 
this protocol will work. We have been using cURL for this.
