class CopyRPMs(ShellCommand):
    Custom build step for copying RPMs to build repo.  Needs to be a
    custom build step because it's conditional on a build property.
    def start(self):
        build_type = self.getProperty("ims_build_type")  # a custom
build property
        if build_type != "versioned":          # this is a production build
            self.step_status.setText(["copy rpms", "skipped"])
            return SKIPPED

That works fine, except the SKIPPED step is showing up in the
waterfall as yellow, not green.  Am I missing something, or is this a
