[Buildbot-devel] doStepIf function

Since people have been talking about this, does anyone know the syntax to query the result of a previous step?
Something like:

def doStepIf(step):
    return step.build.previousStep.getResults()

I'm banging my head trying to work out the correct way to climb the ladder to get this information :S

Something like this:


def do_step_test(step):
     return step.build.getProperties().has_key("FOO") and  
step.getProperty("FOO") in fooList

     doStepIf = do_step_test,
     command = 'some command')


To make that work with lambda functions, I think you would need to put  
the "and" inside a single lambda expression. The boolean "and" of two  
function definitions won't get you what you want (not to be confused  
with the *results* of two functions, "and"ed together).
