My employer uses Hudson and I considered using Hudson for GIMP too. 
Automatically building and testing commits before they are merged to 
master is a really neat thing to do.

But I chose buildbot over Hudson because

* buildbot is more readily available than Hudson, for example, Fedora 13 
does not have Hudson packages
* buildbot is built on Python, which is less controversial in terms of 
software freedom than Java (Personally I'm fine with both, but it can 
still matter to some)
* I already knew Hudson and wanted to learn buildbot
* I feared that people would look at Gerrit+Hudson as an obstacle, since 
commits needs to be submitted, it's not enough to just push

And now that I've experimented with buildbot a bit, I have ended up 
liking the system, so I don't plan to switch over to Hudson
