Hi Glen,

maybe it would be best to have a universal build as the quality  
dashboard submission?
if you have an intel mac to build it on, using


I just discovered that is is easy to build universal binaries...

I guess unless someone needs to have an intel only binary for some  
specific purpose,
then universal is better as you test building both ppc and i386  
architecures at the same time?

but then again the tests would only be run on the intel parts of the  
binaries not on the ppc parts...
on an intel machine that is.

Maybe I/We/someone should also submit an OSX universal binary VTK  
quality dashboard built on a PPC.
I have a G5 powermac that could be used for that,
if someone shows me how to set up the nightly build and dashboard
