[Buildbot-devel] Propagating build properties to dependent schedulers

Hi all,

In our buildbot installation, we have a "checkout" factory with (among other 
things) an SVN checkout step, and a "work" factory that runs the actual 
tests.  The scheduler for the "work" factory is a dependent on the "checkout" 
factory, i.e. with buildbot.scheduler.Dependent .

Is there a way to convey build property information from the "checkout" 
factory to the dependent "work" factory?  Specifically, I need to communicate 
the value of got_revision, so that I can add commands to the "work" factory 
that use its value.

I thought of making a special subclass of Dependent, but as I write this don't 
know if that will solve the problem yet.

Thanks in advance.  Incidentally, we're using 0.7.6; master and slave both run 
on linux (Ubuntu).
