[Buildbot-devel] Pause build idea

A passing thought, that I have not tested - I don't know the state of
the builddir after a stopBuild. 

The allowForce option in WebStatus may suffice if you have opportunity
to monitor the build that is failing, since the forceBuild option
changes the builder page to allow stop-build too.

Subject: [Buildbot-devel] Pause build idea

I was thinking of implementing a BuildStep that would pause the build
for specified time if there was a failure in the previous step. I need
this so I
can  preserve the test environment for debugging before it's torn down.
I was
thinking of pausing based on the existence of a file so that the build
can be
unpaused at any point.  Lastly, pause would wait for X time after
timestamp on
said file so developers could touch the file to buy some more time.

Does anything like this exist already? Anyone have any pointers?
