[Buildbot-devel] Passing properties to dependent builders

Hello there, I have a buildbot setup for testing followed by uploading, and
I'd like the upload builders to have access to the properties setup by the
testing builders.  As far as I can tell, properties are not automatically
passed, probably because the dependency relationship is between schedulers
not builders, and I can therefore have an upstream scheduler run multiple
builders, each of which sets different values for a certain property.
 Which property a dependent scheduler passes down to its builders would
then be ill-defined.

Is there some method for communicating values from one to the other though?
 This would be really useful, right now I'm writing out files to `/tmp`
which seems like a pretty ugly hack.
