My current scripts are all in Apache Ant <http://ant.apache.org/>, 
which requires Java.
However, there are a number of alternatives for Python: 
<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_build_automation_software>. (I 
have no experience with Python, nor with any of those Python-based tools.)

I've never looked into scripts that are automaticlly triggered by CVS 
checkins. I found something at
but we probably need to find out how to trigger Python or PHP scripts.

I looked into ISO Schematron support some time ago and didn't find 
anything for PHP.
However, there is also the Python-based Amara XML Toolkit:
