Automate XDK build task

Hello,
I have several Cordova based projects we build with XDK and it proves to be a fantastic tool.
Many kudos for the great work!

Now I look for ways to automate the build process and hook it to our continuous integration system.
Here is a typical workflow.

After building, testing and packing our projects (fully automated) I come to XDK to build them.
Here automation ends and I repetitively do the following manual tasks:

1. open XDK IDE
2. go to build tab and unlock the certificates for Android and iOS builds, punching in passwords
3. select project "A" and push build button, wait until it's done
4. select project "B" and push build button, wait until it's done
....
X. go to email client and download the builds produced by XDK

I would love to be able to replace all those steps with a gulp, ant, or whatever script.
Is it currently possible to do things like this?
If not - are there any plans to address such request?

Thank you in advance.

Unfortunately, our system isn't well designed for use in a CI system. For that I recommend you try using Cordova CLI directly.

You might be able to use a testing suite to automate the manual steps you're performing.
