We've the Hudson setup for Subversion build process. Hudson provides
many reports that I'm not sure if buildbot provides:
a) Test time trend report
b) Plugin to check the python coding semantics using pylint
c) Plugins for code coverage, Clover, Cobertura. I'm not sure if it has
support for any code coverage tool for C/Python though
d) ... and many more plugins that might be useful for this build process

It is easier to manage jobs in Hudson while we have to create new builds
for every new releases.

As Greg suggested, we should try both the build systems to leverage the
benefits, until we decide upon anyone. I shall co-ordinate the setup for
Hudson, if we decide to do so.
