Hey Dustin, list,

I haven't coded much in python. But i can read the code and understand.
Refering to your mail below, if i want to support android: i'll have to
write a plugin.

Since i want to minimize the effort for writing this, i'm looking at Git
implementation in buildbot. My idea is to copy the Git related code and
modify it to support android, as android uses a wrapper for git.

Looking through the source found out the following:
1. buildbot/steps/source.py
    It has a class named "Git" derived from a class called "Source"
2. buildbot/slave/commands.py
    It also has a class named "Git" derived from a class called
"SourceBase". Later registers the command.
So i've to modify both the classes?? Is there a howto/steps for supporting a
new VCS. Can u help me out with the steps to support android. It would be
better if i could get a checklist saying modify/write this, this, and

waiting for your reply..
