Yes! I'm pleased to report that Eric Mangold (aka 'teratorn') and I were
working on a Trac plugin at PyCon last week. He's doing most of the work, I
was just adding some support code to the buildbot side. The approach we're
taking is to add an XMLRPC status server to the buildbot, which is then
queried by the Trac plugin when you look at the "timeline" page (to include
build as events just like changesets and wiki/ticket modifications). We were
also adding a page to show the status of the most recent build for all

The Darcs branch where we're stashing the code is in
http://buildbot.net/repos/trac-plugin . The 'Branch.notes' file there has
some more details. http://buildbot.net/trac/wiki/TracPlugin is a place for
questions and brainstorming.

Eric has some great ideas about integrating 'buildbot try' builds with
patches attached to Trac tickets, to facilitate a review process rather like
the "UQDS" policy that Twisted uses. For more information, take a look at
that branch, and at
