[Buildbot-devel] Increase Timeout value for master

You are right, the default is 20mins.  Now I have added "timeout=3600"
in the f.addStep(ShallCommand, ...), but the status stdio page still
shows the timeout as 1200 secs.  Is the timeout feature broken in 0.7.5?

If the timeout is really 12 minutes, then check your master.cfg to see
if the timeout parameter is being set on the buildstep (I was under
the impression that the default timeout was 1200 seconds, or 20

'timeout' is a parameter to all buildsteps which subclass ShellCommand
(and possibly other steps).
