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

I think I'm close, but I have something wrong.
my master.cfg looks for the options passed to "force build" form using
buildbot.scripts.runner class ForceOptions.
The shell script called in factory.BuildFactory by shell.ShellCommand
also prints out the rev and branch it was passed.
When I "Force Build", the "Branch to build:" or "Revision to build:" are
not available using ForceOptions in master.cfg.
What object would have this?
Any help is greatly appreciated.
Below I have a relevant snip from master.cfg:
# Read "Force Build" form's branch or revision.
from buildbot.scripts.runner import ForceOptions
options = ForceOptions()
for word in options.keys():
print "%s:%s\n" % (word,options[word])
# build requested branch
my_branch= "-b branches/"+options[branch]
# default branch trunk
# print target branch name
print "BRANCH:%s\n" % my_branch
# build requested revision
# default revision HEAD
# print target revision name
print "REVISION:%s\n" % my_revision
from buildbot.steps import source, shell
from buildbot.process import factory
h = factory.BuildFactory()
c['builders'] = [
The master's twistd.log does not show the rev or branch options chosen
from the 'Force Build' form.
