Good idea.

I hope SVNbinaries (http://svnbinaries.open.collab.net/) will do
something similar for Subversion releases, e.g. have a build
server monitor http://svn.collab.net/repos/svn/tags/ for changes
and build binaries/rpms/bindings as required.

Thrown in a subscription model (e.g. RSS feed) for the build server
for each project (build type) and it would make a lot of our lives
that little bit easier.

I don't know about best practice, but having setup a similar
system, I now plan to make more use of subversion metadata
(custom properties) to help drive the build process, rather than
keep the info in CruiseControl.

One thing I did find useful was having a master CruiseControl
config file, with projects and common variables stored as ENTITY.
This makes setting up new projects trivial, keeps them
consistent, and makes changes to common variables for all
projects far easier.

I can offer you scripts, but their for NAnt and CruiseControl.NET,
customised for our build environment/repository structure, and
integrate with MSBuild, NUnit, FxCop, NCover and Sandcastle,
so probably wouldn't be very useful to you.

Good luck!
