The same applies to me (VU Amsterdam), and I believe Mathias Fleury (MPII Saarbr├╝cken) is also a heavy user of Testboard when he modifies Isabelle (e.g. the multiset library).

From a pure basic user's perspective, I don't see much of a difference between Mira and Jenkins. To me it's just Testboard, and most of the time it works, and then I'm happy. Sometimes Mathias just sends me a link to a patch he's pushed to Testboard for me to review, before he pushes it to Isabelle. That's also very useful.
