[Buildbot-devel] N builders per bot ?

Good morning Darin. I can only share from my brief experience with 
buildbot. You can do it two difference ways and I have done both. If you 
spawn off more than one build on a single slave, it trys to to it in 
parallel. I have not been real successful with that. You can also stack 
multiple builds in the master.cfg. For example, if you want a single 
slave to build your project on a particular slave, when you specify the 
steps in the builders section, put in the steps for the first build, 
then follow with the steps for the second build, and so on. The builds 
will happen in a linear fashion and will take longer, but they all 
happen on the same slave. I hope this helps.
