[Buildbot-devel] Adding a Changelist to Buildbot Notification emails

Dear Buildbot Community,
I would like to modify the buildbot mail notifier to be able to append a
changelist to the build notification email that gets sent when a build
completes. The changelist is to be a report of the changes between the
current build and the last successful built.
We have a tool that can generate a changelist report given two changelist
numbers, the problem we are running into is how to retrieve these two
numbers because for our build configuration, there is not really a concept
of a last build. In this build configuration, we have to force the build
manually with the click of a button on our web interface, and when forcing
the build, you can specify any revision number to build from (and thus you
could choose an older revision number).
- Is there a way to keep track of the latest last known good build
revision number? For example, our web page would have a form that looked
like the following:
- Also, do you know where the following parameters (name, reason, branch,
revision) get passed to in case we would want to catch them for error
Reason for build:
Branch to build:
Revision to build:
Last known good build, which is build #67 was at changelist 4910.
Generate changelist report starting from  (with  being in a text
box that you could change if you wanted to start the report from an older
Another idea is to have our build run by a scheduler, so that a new build is
built every night. Since the scheduler is always building a new build, it
will know the last successful build that it built.
- Is there a way that we can trigger the scheduler on demand through the
- And if so, how can we retrieve the the current revision number and last
revision number that the scheduler has built?
Any help or suggestions would be much appreciated.
