[Buildbot-devel] Updated Debian packaging

Hi All
When installing a slave on an older system I used the Python virtualenv
and as long as it is active one can do all the python setups (easy
install stuff) and then access the buildslave commands. When the build
master communicates everything seems to work okay.

just my thought and  experience.
