I’m looking to set up a continuous integration server for a rails

I’ve read about damagecontrol and CIA, and wonder what experience you
can share so I can make my mind.
I played around with both of the above a few months ago. I decided to
go with damagecontrol at the time for the simple reason that CIA
needed to be run on the same server as the Subversion repository
(wasn’t an option for that project) whereas damagecontrol would
periodically check for and export changes from the Subversion
repository from a remote machine. Of course, then everything fell
apart when the application was upgraded to a newer version of Rails
and would no longer work with damagecontrol.
If I had the option of running the continuous integration product on
the same server as Subversion, I would probably go with CIA for
precisely the reasons you mentioned.

Alice came to a fork in the road. “Which road do I take?” she asked.
“Where do you want to go?” responded the Cheshire cat.
“I don’t know,” Alice answered.
“Then,” said the cat, “it doesn’t matter.”
