+If set, this specifies a tuple of @code{(delay, repeats)} which means
+that when a full VC checkout fails, it should be retried up to
+ at var{repeats} times, waiting @var{delay} seconds between attempts. If
+you don't provide this, it defaults to @code{None}, which means VC
+operations should not be retried. This is provided to make life easier
+for buildslaves which are stuck behind poor network connections.
