I am progressing a bit further on my plugin that will allow for easier DITA builds within the Hudson continuous integration server. Hudson is a quite handy build management system that offers you a lot of additional value on top of your existing builds and processes.
You can use your existing DITA-OT Ant scripts to build your output within Hudson. Many Dita users are not Ant experts and often Ant is one of the limiting factors in Dita adoption by smaller teams. I hope this plugin will help further promote DITA and provide another simple tool for Dita builds.
All feedback and suggestions are welcome.

Defining your DITA Open Toolkit installations. You can define multiple installations if it is ever necessary to use a back level version or for testing new versions prior to moving to production.
Adding a Dita build to a job
Jobs can include many steps and multiple builds. If you are building an Eclipse feature you might include your code build, context sensitive help build, and DITA transform to help topics within the same job.
