[Buildbot-devel] Chaining two commands in the Test build step

Thanks for your prompt reply.

I made it the following way:

class UnitTest(Test):
  def createSummary(self, log):
    # Quick & dirty hardcoded key to get the XML buffer
    buffer = self.cmd.logs['report'].getText()
    html_buffer = xslt_transform(buffer, stylesheet)
    self.addHTMLLog('report.html', html_buffer)


f.addStep(UnitTest(command=["scons", "-k", "unit.test"], \
  logfiles={"report": "unit_test.xml"}))

This seems to work, but the step will have 3 log files:
 * stdio
 * report (the raw XML file in HTML form, like any text log)
 * report.html (the correct transformed XML document)

I would like to ask the following questions:

 1. How can I delete "report"? I would like to store on disk and showin
 the step only the "stdio" and "report.html" files. Is it OK/enough to
 just delete from the self.cmd.logs dictionary the element with
 "report" key and to delete the corresponding file from the disk?

 2. createSummary is called only for 'stdio' log for a command, right?

 3. What would be the best/preferred method to get the whole raw XML
 content/buffer in the createSummary() function?
