There are a number of patches available on buildbot.net that are in
fairly wide use, but not available in a relased version of buildbot.
This quickly becomes tricky both for the users of these patches, as
well as for their authors.

In consultation with Brian, I have set up a system for making
"development releases" of buildbot.  These releases will not
necessarily be stable, but will represent a more recent snapshot of
buildbot development than the latest release.  These development
releases will contain all reasonably well-formed patches available on
Trac, and will serve as a "feeder" for getting patches accepted into
the main release.

The releases are made from the darcs repository at
and the releases themselves can be found, datestamped, in

If you have patches, either on buildbot.net, or on the mailing list,
which you would like to see included, please contact me.  Either 'cc'
me on the Trac ticket, or send me an email.  My standard for patches
is that they have all necessary code, test cases, and any necessary

Brian will continue to manage the far more sensitive process of making
"official" releases.

Please take a look, and bring to my attention any patches you'd like
to see included.
