Well, really, one more mini-post-mortem.   I'm sending this to the
list for anyone working on ease of configuration in the future.

"I got tired of managing our BuildBot(s), so I decided to switch our
continuous integration tool to Jenkins (formerly known as Hudson). You
find our Jenkins at
The main benefits are:
* An order of magnitude easier to configure and maintain.
 All configuration happens through the web interface.
* Has its own account and login system, no need for accounts on the
host machine.
* One Jenkins for all our projects vs one buildbot per project
* Mails with last build log lines and list of changes since last build
works out of the box.
That is quite a bit of work to get working with buildbot, so much that
I gave up on it."
