[Cdash] No builds shown in CDash project page‏‏

Hi Bob,

It seems that the database is in an unstable state. I would recommend to 
do a fresh install of the newest CDash (1.8.2). There might be a way to 
fix the database by creating the missing groups directly in the database 
and link them correctly to each project. My fear is that some other 
things might be broken as well. If you want to go that path, and if you 
can share your database (if not too big), I'll be happy to help.

Otherwise I think a fresh install might solve all your problem (and add 
new features from 1.8).
