[Buildbot-devel] multiple build masters?

I seem to have spiked this list with my own traffic the last few  
days...  hopefully everyone finds my questions good for the archives :)

I have a scenario where, for portability of build/slave masters, I was  
thinking of using one master for build/test of a branch.  This means  
that when you create a new branch, you could easily copy the previous  
build/test master config file and change it slightly depending on the  
svn repo.

Unfortunately, I just realized that this means a separate webpage per  
master.  And it probably wouldn't be easy to share status information  
between masters to show up on one page?  The other options were to log  
status to a DB and then create a custom build page, but that's  
starting to sound like a lot of extra work for little benefit.

It seems like the ideal buildbot scenario is to have one master for  
everything, and just create different build factories per branch.

thanks for your ideas,
