Ok then, out it goes :).

Small clarification on the service functionality. It's intended to be able to start/stop multiple instances of buildbot depending on how you edit the buildbot.conf file. i.e. you can define multiple locations on the system to have buildbot run under, not just the default location, and then stop/start them individually by referring to the stanza name in the config file by executing "service buildbot stop stanza_name".

As to the location, I thought I'd see if it was useful as a default service script or whether to be stuck away in the examples/contrib area. Sounds like it's the second location for now :-).

Oh definitely not Requires.
