Hi, Ron!  Small world; what project are you setting up Buildbot for?  I 
manage the buildbot setup for the Gnash project:


I run four of the slaves currently listed - the two Win32 slaves, and 
the two Ubuntu 64-bit slaves.

We only do scheduled nightly builds as well as on-demand builds through 
the buildbot system.  I had set it up for changesource using our commit 
mails as the trigger, but we decided that we only needed daily builds 
and if someone wanted to do an intra-day build, they'd just kick it off 

It might be easier to just set up regular commit mails and use the 
maildir change source - just FYI.
