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

Thanks Amber--that worked.

For anyone interested in the details, one builder now sends a message along the lines of:

        buildbot sendchange --master some.server.com:9977 --auth <name:pwd> --who <initiating builder>  --property samples_url:example.foo.com/%(buildername)s-%(buildnumber)d/some/path/ dummyfile

And the receiving builder has a build step along the lines of:

smoke_test_step = shell.ShellCommand(
                            description = "run smoke tests",
                            descriptionDone=["Finished running","smoke tests"],
                            command = ["someExecutable", "-f", "someScriptFile", "--", "landing_page_url", WithProperties("%s", "samples_url")],
                            workdir = "DesignSamples",

The only problem I had was that I couldn't specify the URL with an 'http:" scheme, since properties are specified as:



...has two colons, which confused buildbot. Perhaps there's a way to escape the second colon, but I simply removed the scheme specification since the browser defaults to 'http:' which is OK for now. 

Thanks again,
-- Matt
