On my Lucid, it goes like this:
- I've created a new user called pd,
- Perhaps a /home/pd/auto-build/ folder needs to be created,
- The attached file (run-auto-builds) goes into /etc/cron.daily/ ,
- and because cron is actually run by anacron, I've also added
"START_HOURS_RANGE=9-24" to /etc/anacrontab in order to prevent the builds
to happen at night (because they spin up the fans and that is too noisy),
- the PATH in anacrontab may also have to be adjusted if things don't want
to run.
...from this point the build shall happen every day - unless I've forgot
something important.
IF the build seems to happen every day, tell Hans-Cristoph Steiner and he
will enable the uploads to the server. (BTW, you can also allow ssh access
to the pd account on your machine later, but it's an independent task.)

This is how I recollect the setup, but just tell me if you get stuck or
anything unclear.
