in the master.cfg under Scheduler section , you need to add the modules
for which the sendchange events should be listening to.
c['schedulers'].append(Scheduler(name="all", branch=None,

In the above e.g, modules netkit-tftp and buildbot-full will be
listening to sendchange command.

Try this, should work.

Subject: [Buildbot-devel] info needed on triggering the buildbot

Hi list,
I've a git repo and i've setup the periodic scheduler to trigger the
buildbot after every 6 hrs. I also have a force build button on the
webstatus page. I've configured the buildbot to listen for changes on
xyz branch not the master branch. The above setup works fine.
But now due to some reasons i want to trigger the buildbot through a
script based on some other inputs instead of periodic build. How do i
achieve it?? any pointers?? 
Tried using the "buildbot sendchange --username=abc
--master=xx.xx.xx.xxx:yyyy --branch=xyz". After i run the cmd, it prints
the msg "change sent successfully". The buildmaster's log gets the msg
"2009-06-09 18:03:21+0530 [Broker,3,xx.xx.xx.xxx] perspective_addChange
called", but none of the builders are invoked.
Thanks in advance,
