Buildsets are an implementation detail of Buildbot, not something you
can configure directly.  They serve to group the build requests that a
scheduler makes in a single go.  A Dependent scheduler monitors
buildsets produced by its upstream scheduler, and initiates some
additional builds when each buildset completes.

You haven't said what sort of post-build processing you want to
perform, so it's hard to say much more than that.
