[Buildbot-devel] How to handle logfiles when multiple tests are run in a single buildstep

If you have one step per test you will get a log per step (the stdio), and the link to each log file will be available to you; so you can just put the link in a mail and send it out (I assume that you need to send reports with pass and fail, so you will have a mail notifier, in which you can append lines from each log and generate a report).

Another way would be to get the steps to dump the output to a file, and then you can manipulate the file content and do whatever you see fit.

Just check the mail notifier section on the manual; it has a great example where you can see how to call the logs, parse them and stick the links to the logs in a message formatter (either in html or plain text if you prefer).

Either way is very simple, but maybe there are others that are even easier :)
