[Buildbot-devel] Many builds out of one directory?

Sob, my standard answer of the recent days applies.

You would need to lock down your source dir for all builds, which will
require a special scheduler. On top of that, you'd need to do a
checkout per slave, another thing that I'm working on, as it requires
a hacked up lock. And of course, in my case, i use several steps to
pull, so I need to hack up BuildStepGroup.

None of that is in review shape just yet.

Brian, this comes up often enough, are you interested in taking this
up stream? If so, how would we go about it?
