#3219: MultiShellCommand build step
Reporter:  shawn.waldon  |      Owner:

Priority:  minor         |  Milestone:  undecided
 Version:  0.8.10        |   Keywords:
 BuildBot currently has the ShellCommand build step, but nothing to quickly
 create a series of shell commands as a single step.  I recently ran into a
 situation where depending on the build configuration, I needed to execute
 a different number of shell commands on the slave to create the tests.  I
 ended up writing a python script to the slave's build folder and running

 It would be nice if there were a subclassable build step to run a number
 of shell commands in a loop or do some logic within BuildBot about which
 commands to run based on the output of a command (for example which git
 submodules fail to update).  Otherwise it would be nice to add some
 documentation (perhaps a complete example) of how to do this properly.
