AFAIK BuildBot doesn't support this at this time. I've also tried this kind of
setup but since all my projects have different repositories, it confuses
buildbot when all projects are handled by the same master but different
schedulers (eg, committing in any of the projects ends up triggering a build
for all projects with the same revision, even when dependencies are set in
What I do is that I periodically rebuild all dependent projects.
