[Buildbot-devel] Using "Branch to build: " in master.cfg

I really need some hint where to start looking to solve this problem.
When one enters a revision and branch on 'force build', what part of
buildbot code processes it?  
What do I have to 'import from' to attain access to the entered revision
and branch?
I am learning python, but the most confusing part is figuring out what
objects have access to the target data.
