[Buildbot-devel] buildstep factory

I'm trying to make a custom build step that has an extra attribute. I followed the example:


My buildstep looks like:

class RaiPrepBuild(Compile):
    """Prepare build, making packages and dependencies"""

    def __init__(self, make_extra=None, **kwargs):
        Compile.__init__(self, **kwargs)

    def start(self):
        """Override shell.Compile.start method."""

        if self.make_extra:
            self.command.append("make_extra=%s" % self.make_extra)

When the build step is created however, I get an exception in the start() method:

exceptions.AttributeError: RaiPrepBuild instance has no attribute 'make_extra'

I can't figure out what this is. I trace through the code for process/base.py
setupBuild(). The factory does have the "make_extra" argument, but the RaiPrepBuild does
not have it when the step is built.

Any idea what I'm doing wrong?
