[Buildbot-devel] required fields forcing a build

Sounds a bit elaborate.  I like kiss, keep it stupid simple. 

I was think more just being felxible enough to make each parameter flexible.

I do think the force build needs to be more flexible, but should not not be more with a template?

I so see the need for multiple schedulers with artibrary slaves.  I even see a build forced on a particular slave.
The way the GUI is now seems somewhat sufficient in that you click on the column head.
