[Buildbot-devel] receiving a sendchange message: getting the list of changed files

I have one builder that runs a bunch of steps that result in a product in an output directory. That builder then sends a sendchange message to another buildmaster to cause it to run tests on that output directory.

Initially, the output directory had a well known name, but now it changes with each commit. So, I want to add that directory name information to the sendchange message and have the receiving buildmaster get the name from the message.

So, the message (in a ShellCommand step) looks like:

    buildbot sendchange --master some.server.com:9977 --auth <name:pwd> --who <initiating builder>  output_directory

The output_directory path is sent in the message, but I don't (after much doc perusal and googling) understand how to get that directory information in the receiving buildmaster.  

Can anyone point me in the right direction?
