[Buildbot-devel] 2 repositories, 1 buildmaster

I assume it's a problem with my schedulers, I have no problems running the
builds seperatley from the web page.
What I need to do is have each individual build triggered when a commit is
made to it's repository.
Each project should be treated individually, as though running on 2
different buildmasters.
I have 2 seperate hook scripts in each repository to notify the buildmaster
with the required info.
At the moment, when a commit is made to either repository, both builds are
I've tried altering the 'branch' parameter in the scheduler, but this
stopped both builds from triggering.
I'm trying to acomplish what you and Matthieu appear to have done.

Is your problem schedulers or builders?  Can you run the builds manually
from the buildbot web page?  If so, and your problem is getting them to run
automatically, when exactly do you want builds to be triggered?  Both builds
whenever a dev submits anything?  One build when some files churn the other
build when other files churn?  Nightly?


Like Matthieu, I have multiple projects running on the same master driving
three different slaves, with no trouble.

I use buildbot on two separate projects, one with CVS the other one with SVN
with the same buildmaster, no problem.

As far as I know you must setup one buildmaster per project.
This question already came to the list (e.g.: http://thread.gmane.org/
gmane.comp.python.buildbot.devel/1498/focus=1502) and that's the kind
of problem I ran into when I did my 1st buildbot setup until I
realized that the only way to do it is to have separate buildmasters.

One of the thing that annoys me most is that I frequently fall in 
this scenario: I have a SVN repository where people develop libfoo.
I another SVN repository, some other people develop a program `bar'
that uses `libfoo'.  I another SVN repository, some other people
develop a friendly GUI around the raw CLI program `bar' (name it
`qux').  With BuildBot, you must setup 3 buildmasters.  Ideally, you
want that whenever a dev commits something in libfoo and the build
succeeds, then `bar' be rebuilt with the new libfoo.  Unfortunately, 
there is no way ATM to trigger a build in another buildmaster
(although I guess this should be fairly easy to do since the whole
code required is already there, in the commit hooks.  The only thing
needed is a buildstep that makes it easy to add this at the end of a 
build process).  So what I do ATM is that dependent projects (`bar'
and `qux') are rebuilt frequently with a Periodic scheduler (e.g.
every 5 hours).
