He's referring to a pair of features that allow you to start a build in a
"not normal" way.  One of them is the "try" build, where you upload your
changes to the server as a test before comitting your changes.  The other is
the ability to enter a branch into the "Force Build" panel and build that
branch.  Unfortunately, if he also copies his resulting files from these
types of build to the network share (or whatever) the people using it will
end up with something different than they expected.

On my copy of buildbot I edited ShellCommand to include information about
the build (e.g. the revision number, so I could use in sync, commit, and
build-specific files) in environment variables.  I suppose if I supported
try builds and branch builds I would be able to add to those environment
variables what type of build is being done, and change the behavior of the
copy script to ignore try and branch builds.

Sorry I dont have the patch for that handy, I don't recall whether i sent it
to Brian.
