I need to pass a host of properties to a homespun Source kind of step to set the environment up.....and WithProperties is not quite right for I get a render exception, so I searched to

http://trac.buildbot.net/ticket/554 which is v close to solving something I need for a source and compile kind of build-step. I think of a solution like Source(cmd, env = CopyProperties('foo')). where foo: {'prop1': val1, 'prop2': val2}

You may ask why is the env-setting so large. I dont have an answer, but I know there are better ways. 

The code might look like:

def glob2get_ace_env(rc, stdout, stderr):
    lines = [l.strip() for l in stdout.split('\n') ]
    filtered = '\n'.join(l for l in lines if l.find('=') != -1)
    from configobj import ConfigObj
    import StringIO
    cfg = ConfigObj(StringIO.StringIO(filtered))
    return {'ace_env': cfg.dict() }

def buildSteps(f, branch):
                          command= ['/auto/itasca/tools/bin/aceInfo', '-b', branch, "envFile"],
                          property= "aceenvfile"))

                          command=["bash", "-c", WithProperties("source %(aceenvfile)s; env")],

    step = ACME(name='acme',
                          environ = CopyProperties('ace_env'))
