Hey Dustin,

First of all, I wanted to say awesome work with BuildBot!

I wanted to reach out to you about potentially collaborating to let
more people know about the project. I think that a lot of our users
would be interested, but sometimes the awareness is the problem.

I'm a Technical Writer for the DigitalOcean Community:
https://www.digitalocean.com/community/. We have a knowledge base of
over 900 tutorials that gets over a three million views a month. We
take a lot of pride in hosting a variety of well written, clear,
tutorials on a variety of open source projects.

While most of our tutorials are composed by our internal writing team
or individual enthusiasts, when we get an opportunity, we like to
publish tutorials by the project creators, maintainers, and

Would you or someone else who contributes to BuildBot be interested in
writing up an article?  We would be happy to edit and publish it.

Some examples of projects that have written for the DigitalOcean community are:

Ghost: https://www.digitalocean.com/community/articles/how-to-use-the-digitalocean-ghost-application

Dokku: https://www.digitalocean.com/community/articles/how-to-use-the-digitalocean-dokku-application

Saltstack: https://www.digitalocean.com/community/articles/how-to-install-salt-on-ubuntu-12-04

When we publish articles, we also like to promote them on social media
via Facebook (27K Likes), Twitter(83K followers), and Google Plus
(145K followers) .  Also, as a side note, we do pay the author of the
article $200 in DO hosting or cash through paypal as a little thank
you :).

Please let me know what you think. I look forward to hearing from you.

Warm Regards,
