Comment (by Jeremy.Cornett):

 Replying to [comment:1 tom.prince]:
 > While this sounds interesting, I think it is outside the scope of
 buildbot proper. One difficulty is that buildbot's data model doesn't
 support a sourcestamp having multiple branches, so that there is no way to
 communicate to the source step that it should check out multiple branches.

 Yes, it is a problem that the sourcestamp doesn't support having multiple
 branches. We had to forgo using the sourcestamp to determine what commit
 to check out for the builds. Because we are looking for changes to
 multiple branch for a single builder, we have to check out the head no
 matter what using the alwaysUseLatest=True switch on the Git source
 checkout because it doesn't check out the branch in the timestamp, but
 instead a set branch which is the base branch (master).
