Yes, it is ok to add to the CDash wiki.

Yes, it is possible.  The best thing to do is use the trigger script. 
So, use http submission as if it were a Dart1 submission.  Use a python 
script as the trigger script.  The trigger script can read in the xml 
file, and put it to CDash, and also xmlrpc it to Dart2.  I will see if I 
can dig up the script we were using at Kitware and put it on the wiki.

I don't have ideas, but perhaps Dave C. or Julien will.
