Comment (by tardyp):

 buildbotURL is used to configure CORS access. This is very important for
 security to mitigate XSS attacks.
 It cannot be guessed because it depends on how a reverse proxy is
 configured (reverse proxy is recommended in order to get gzip compression
 and https)

 As lots of new people are doing the mistake of misconfiguring it, the UI
 will complain when it detects it is misconfigured.

 If you are interrested in making the message more explicit in the case of
 x.y vs x, we will kindly accept the patch.
