[Cdash] Weekly tests easily overseen

Hi Martin,

There is currently no way to make the test results visible for longer 
than 24h since this timeframe is hardcoded in CDash. It would require 
some efforts to make this configurable.

It looks like the best option is to resubmit the test results every 
night and as you mentioned you would need to tweak the XML files. You 
will need to change the "BuildStamp" as well as the "StartDateTime" and 
"StartBuildTime" (and the corresponding EndDateTime and EndBuildTime).

Hope that helps,
