Thank you very much for your detailed response. 

Regarding my first question, what we need is to put more arguments in force build screen, so far, four arguments are 'build branch', 'build reason', 'builder name' and 'build revision'. If we can add more arguments to it, it could run ShellCommand with many different arguments.

What other properties would you like? The user's manual section on build
properties[1] describes the existing ones and how to allow your own custom
steps to create new ones.. are there other properties that would be useful on
the build overall (as opposed to being specific to one of your custom steps)
that don't exist yet?

It's documented in the section[2] on "Debug options". If you look at the
manual in the 'info' browser then you get a nice index, such that typing "i
manhole <RET>" will take you right to the section. The HTML version that's
online has this index sitting at the very bottom.. look for the link entitled

If those docs aren't sufficient, please let me know.
