Just a quick note about the web UI in Buildbot-0.9.x.  I've just
wrapped up most of the changes required to distribute this as a
separate Python package, buildbot-www, which contains the built
(minified, optimized, etc.) JavaScript.

There's a good bit of documentation for how all of this works at

And there's a lot of work yet to do -- Pierre's got some work going on
testing the JS.  We need to build the application into layers, rather
than loading hundreds of tiny JS files.  We need to implement a better
protocol (or more protocols) than WebSockets for MQ connections to the
browser.  We need to figure out how to support flexible filtering,
sorting, and pagination in the REST API.  There are lots more data API
resource types to write, and before that a lot of database schema
changes to make.  Most of the TODO stuff is in

Please, have a look, share your thoughts, and if you can, pitch in!
