[Buildbot-devel] BuildBot setProperty in MasterShellCommand

BuildBot Dev -

I'm trying to do something that at face value that I thought would be simple
but has turned out to be slightly more complicated.

I want to get build numbers out of another database separate from buildbot.
 But I need to set it in a property to be passed in a factory step such

factory = BuildFactory()
# check out the source
# run the tests (note that this will require that 'trial' is installed)

I thought the BuildBot way to do this would be to write a custom buildstep
in MasterShellCommand.  Am I thinking the right way or missing something

I have a subclass inherited from MasterShellCommand and am attempting to
setProperty within, but it seems awkward at best.  So I guess my questions

- How do I set properties on the buildmaster in addStep?
- Is this even a good idea?

Thanks -
