Trigger a build at a certain time instead of waiting for SVN commits.

Take a look at the Buildbot example: buildbot nightly build

It would be nice to have a timed build even if there are no commits.

This wouldn't be that difficult a feature to add -- it'd just need a small addition to Build Queue?.populate in queue.py and some way of configuring it. I think the important question is what sort of flexibility is needed in the configuration. Would a cron-style description of when to create builds be sufficient? Something simpler?

  • Operating System changed from BSD to Windows

The main idea is to trigger a nightly build increment the version numbers of the application even if there are no commits on that day. If this is possible with a scheduler that would be sufficient.

This would be a nice change to have. I for one wouldn't need it to be too clever in terms of scheduling - just some way to allow the build to be triggered from the command line so that a cron job could kick it off.
