Sorry, I don't use it myself (but hope to soon).

>From looking at the code something like the following should work:

The SetProperty buildstep should help for the buildstep that determines
whether subsequent steps should execute (I've assumed your extract_fn
returns True/False)

Derive subsequent buildsteps from LoggingBuildStep and override runCommand

class MyBuildStep(buildbot.process.buildstep.BuildStep):
    def runCommand(self, c):
        if self.getProperty['run_following_steps']:

we ought to have some kind of condition built into buildsteps, but I don't
think there is at the moment.

Hope that helps, let me know how it goes.
