I have yet to try, but I'm now wondering what's the difference between
the "Notes", "ExtraFiles" and "Upload" "PARTS". Notice that

About "ctest_submit(FILES ...)". I have seen that
from https://blog.kitware.com/additional-coverage-features-in-cdash/
does use it to send a Project.xml to create subprojects. But I have
not seen that documented elsewhere and now I'm asking myself what
other magic xml types can I send to do magic stuff... not curious
enough yet to learn PHP, though :-)
