 It sounds like your requirements are impossible to satisfy.  There's
 certainly not a lot Buildbot can do to help!

 FWIW merging on build like this is a *very* unusual approach.  The more
 common version is for the long-running development branches to merge
 *from* master periodically, and then have CI just build the latest
 revision on each dev branch.  When it's time to merge the dev branch back
 to master, make sure the latest commit on the dev branch is a merge from
 the latest master, and then tree on master after the merge will be
 identical to the tree on the branch.
