[Buildbot-devel] new BuildBot "success story"

It might be a little premature to call it that ;)  but we have been
running a BuildBot in SpamAssassin for the last couple of weeks, and it
seems to be working (mostly) pretty well:


there's been a couple of teething issues:

  - I had to hack up svn commit-emails.pl support -- patch in the sf.net
    patches queue

  - Michael Parker's dynamic-IP-addressed slaves issue

  - is there a way to pick up idle slaves, when the master is restarted?
    it appears that they must also be restarted to show up as online.
    (it'd be nice if they could poll the server, and reconnect gracefully
    if the server conn dies.)

  - and finally, it's shown up some bizarro FreeBSD locking bug in our
    code; but I can't really blame BuildBot for that, it's just doing
    its job ;)
