[Buildbot-devel] Perforce (P4) commit trigger

I have a buildmaster with several buildslaves. Our Perforce repository 
resides on a separate machine on our network. What I would like to know 
is how do I trigger a build on one of the slaves after a piece of code 
has been checked in to perforce on a particular branch. Has anyone done 
this before? We use triggers quite a lot in perforce, for example, we 
have a script that emails changes to staff. So, how do I issue a command 
to the buildmaster (that resides on a different machine) to start a 
build after there has been a commit?
