There's plenty, just not in one place :-). Take a look at this section,
there's an example with two parameters right there:
http://buildbot.net/repos/release/docs/buildbot.html#WebStatus. Also,
take a look at the sample configurations here:
http://buildbot.net/trac/browser/docs/examples. Finally, some sites
mentioned here keep their (admittedly more complex) configurations in
public VCS repositories: http://buildbot.net/trac/wiki/SuccessStories (I
found pages for GNOME and Mozilla, they have pointers to their
configuration files:
and https://wiki.mozilla.org/ReferencePlatforms/BuildBot).

Don't know anything about Git integration with Buildbot, sorry! You can
start both master and slave in verbose mode and analyze their logs. I'd
first look at how exactly master initiates all the actions on slave.
