I'm glad you found a way to make this work for you.

PS. I do not like the latest CDash-instead of showing “7” updates, it shows

As you noticed, we recently changed the way the Update column looks.
Instead of showing the number of files changed, we now show the revision of
the code that was built.  This makes it easier to quickly see which builds
tested the same version of the software.

We do still show what files changed from one build to the next, though.
Here's an example from today's CDash nightly dashboard:
