[Buildbot-devel] Dynamically evaluated step status

In one of my build processes, I would like to mark a step as passed/failed
based on the results of another action that is operating from outside
buildbot. In more concrete terms, the pass/fail status of a step is
determined by querying certain data in a database, and this data is updated
based on tests run on the results of this build. However, this information
is not immediately available when a build has completed, and I do not want
to block the builder waiting for the status to become available.

A person looking at the waterfall status could therefore see a completed
build's status change from <some colour> to <red/green> after refreshing the

Is this possible? I have done some digging and it looks like the logs/status
are pretty much static once a build is complete. I am investigating how I
might bolt this on, but any guidance would be greatly appreciated.
