Since the changes past the v0.8.0rc1 tag looked innocuous, and because
I already had a git clone of your repository, I checked out the
buildbot-0.8.0 branch (c512b5bcb529) and installed it.

This is on Ubuntu 8.04, and I am using the system Python 2.5 and
twisted 2.5.0 from .debs. (A number of other dependencies were pulled
down via setup.py, such as simplejson and Jinja2.)

I did get one error from the tests:

[ERROR]: buildbot.test.unit.test_util_loop

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/twisted/trial/runner.py",
line 555, in loadPackage
    module = modinfo.load()
  File "/usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/twisted/python/modules.py",
line 386, in load
    return self.pathEntry.pythonPath.moduleLoader(self.name)
  File "/usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/twisted/python/modules.py",
line 621, in moduleLoader
    return self._moduleLoader(modname)
  File "/usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/twisted/python/reflect.py",
line 357, in namedAny
    topLevelPackage = __import__(trialname)
  File "/home/clepple/dl/buildbot/buildbot/test/unit/test_util_loop.py",
line 42, in <module>
    from twisted.python import monkey
exceptions.ImportError: cannot import name monkey

How important is this module? Should I upgrade Twisted, or can this
test be ignored?
