[Buildbot-devel] trying to use buildbot for freeware scientific data package...

Howdy Brian!

Just wanted to send an update as to the BuildBot install here at

I still haven't gotten CVS notifications working, but that's a CVS
problem. Once I get them working to plain old email, I'll try hooking
it up to BuildBot.

Meanwhile, I am using the web page generated by BuildBot, and forcing
builds when I want them. This works great, and I love it!

Now I am going through the chore of installing everything on our many
different types of machines. Mostly I have to upgrade python first, as
many systems here don't have a very recent version.

This is difficult in some cases. For example, on one system, Twisted
seemed to install just fine, but when I try and do:

% twistd -d buildbot.tap 

I get an error:

Failed to load application: [Errno 2] No such file or directory:

Where does twistd.tap really live? I don't know yet...

I'll let you know as time goes by how it's all working for me, but I
love it so far!
