Glad if you like it! It was sufficiently easy to implement and for a
start, its really usable and ok. This week I've added some 40 projects
to CDash using the client, and added 40 times 3-5 users to the projects.
There where basically zero problems.

One thing that would be great for the future is to have more methods
available in the API. Currently we use a happy mix of API and website
methods (and regexp parsers). Its not a problem, but more robust would
be a pure API-based implementation.

However its really not an urgent issue. Just whenever more functionality
comes to the API, we can adapt it in the client and make it ever more

Happy coding and thanks for all your great work,
