[Buildbot-devel] Reconfiguring buildbot via SVN checkins?

Wouldn't it be nice to have the factories be configured dynamically  
upon source checkout?

Say you want to build a project and it's dependencies, you have to  
list these steps in you master.cfg.

It would be so cool to keep the configuration of the factory as part  
of the source checkout, so that the factory automatically imports this  
configuration on the slave.
