My spare time is rather limited, but I'll try to help.

I'll have to read through this, as I'm not familiar with github (nor
anything specific to the buildbot development process).

From quickly glancing over it, two questions arise:

 * For eight, do I simply file a second pull request on branch 'eight'
   rather than 'master'?

 * Is there an easy way to locally run tests? Without having to install
   and setup a full buildbot master?

I'd appreciate some help to get started.
