When Syllable has a VNC server, why not make a private development box available which automatically downloads and builds the latest copy of Syllable from CVS weekly, or perhaps on demand, then makes it available via VNC?

It'd make collaborative testing very easy... and you could throw hardware in the machine and developers could fix bugs that way. Possibly.

It's just an idea... you may not have the bandwidth for this sort of thing.

This would use so much bandwidth it wouldn't be practical. I'd like to be able to automatically produce VMWare disc images of the builds, but at the moment there is a bug in the VFS that stops be from doing this (although I may try it again now I have a machine with a lot of memory...)
