[Buildbot-devel] How to force a triggered build to always use a particular branch

Is it possible to force a build that has been triggered by another build to always build from a particular branch and not from the branch used by the build that triggered it?

defaultBranch allows the branch to be overridden, and I don't see anything that ensures it is always set to the same value.

Plan on trying to set the branch property via the trigger step for the next run, but I would have preferred to limit it to the source checkout step of the triggered build rather than the trigger step of every other build.
