[Buildbot-devel] resource locking?

Still pretty new with buildbot. I couldn't find a clear answer to this:

Say I have two builders, Build and Test.

When Test runs, it is using resources from Build area.  What happens if there is a new build ready to go?   Will it wait until Build is finished (and then potentially corrupt the Test that is executing), or buildbot knows Test is using resources from Build and the next build has to wait until Test is done?

One possibility would be to publish the result of Build in a unique location and have Test use it. Or just block until Test is done.

Is there an area of the online documentation that deals with these issues? What are the various ways of dealing with this pipelining problem?

Thanks in advance!
