Hi all,

This is my first time posting to this list after lurking for a while so
if I misspeak, please forgive me (but let me know so I can avoid
repeating the mistake).

Where I work, we have the following structure in SVN:

 +- trunk
 +- branches
 |    |
 |    + project1
 |    |
 |    + project2
 +- releases
      + 20071110
      + 20071005

I have configured builtbot (0.7.5 from Ubuntu feisty's repository) to
build trunk and certain specific branches without any trouble.

We also need to build release branches, but rather than having to list
every release for AnyBranchScheduler, I put together a subclass thereof
which learns about new releases as they appear.  Would this be of use in
general? (i.e. should I grab the latest source and create a patch)

I've also made changes to IrcStatusBot to notify when builds start and
complete.  Would this be of interest?  I'm less sure of this one because
unlike my team, I suspect others wouldn't want nagging via IRC all the
