[Buildbot-devel] 0.7.10p1: slave properties don't work

now, after restarting buildbot the properties show up the web display of the build. And they are working.

All the time while I was editing master.cfg, I reloaded the buildbot config file remotely (remote.callRemote("reload")). Thus I did not restart buildbot for a long time.

In order to get changes to the slave properties to be effective, the master must be restarted.

As far as I found out, it is NOT sufficient to reload the master.cfg remotely. It is also NOT sufficient to restart the concerning slave.

I think it would be good if this behaviour was documented. How can I file a bug report for this issue?

Best regards,

As far as I know, yes.  In the web display of the build, do you see 'prop1' and 'prop2'?
