[Buildbot-devel] null values of revision from WithProperties

Hi all,

I downloaded buildbot 0.7.3 and tried to use the new WithProperties
feature to get BuildBot to output a file with a subversion revision
number as its prefix.

I used the following in my master.cfg:

    141 compile4 =s(step.ShellCommand
    142     , command = ["scons"
    143         , "DISTTAR_NAME=ascend"
    144         , step.WithProperties("RELEASE=0.%(revision)s")
    145         , "dist"
    146     ]
    147 )

The resulting command shows up in my BuildBot logs as

	scons DISTTAR_NAME=ascend RELEASE=0. dist

which shows that the revision number is being evaluated as None. You can
see the full details here:

*Can anyone suggest what I might be doing wrong here? Could it be due to
the fact that I used a "forced build", simply?
