I just merged a branch into master that should help you keep results on the
dashboard longer.  If you create a new BuildGroup (on manageBuildGroup.php)
you'll see a new field: "Build Type".  If you mark this new group as
"Latest" then it will display its most recent results, no matter when they
occurred.  To define what should appear in this group, navigate over to the
"Dynamic BuildGroups" pane and add some rows.

I plan on writing up a blog post with more thorough instructions on how to
use this new feature, but I figured you all might appreciate a sneak peak.
Please let me know how this new feature suits your needs if you get a
chance to test it out.
