[Buildbot-devel] Dedicated build hosts on a scheduler or branch

In master (which will someday be 0.8.8), there is a new configuration point 'canStartBuild', which lets you have some veto power over whether you'll allow a slave to accept a given build. 


You could write a canStartBuild functor that, for your use cases:
 * checks if the build contains a property with a certain value; the property would be set by the force scheduler
 * checks the sourcestamp for the build for the special branch
