Hi Jean-Michel, forgive the fly-by, but have you checked out
contrib/bzr_buildbot.py in the trunk
(http://github.com/djmitche/buildbot/tree/master)?  It has a poller that
can run within the buildbot master to look for changes.  

Alternatively, if you run your main repo, it also has a change hook that
you can install in the main bzr server to push changes, rather than
pulling them in buildbot.

If you give it a try and run into issues, let me know.
