[Buildbot-devel] Dynamically specifying SVN URL from web interface

Hi buildbotters,

I have the situation where it is required that developers be able to specify
which code branch that a buildbot should build, from the web interface. Making
heaps of differently configured slaves is not an option, the branch and/or
revision could be arbitrary.

We do not use change triggered builds, only manually forced ones.

Ideally there would be 2 additional fields on the 'force build' page, for
specifying the end of the svn url eg. /branches/xxxx and revision eg. 12345.
These would be passed into the checkout step and formed into a complete svn

Is this possible with the current buildbot code? Would it be simple to add? If
Brian is tight on time, please point out where to start looking at this stuff
and I'll dive right in.
