Daniel handled the setup I think he just followed the instructions
here to setup sentry:

We also setup raven on the build master (pip install raven), this is
the client (raven-python) here the instructions:

Then create a project on sentry, we are creating a project per master,
maybe too many for you :-)

And here is an example of what we added at the end of master.cfg

####### Sentry

from twisted.python import log
from raven import Client

####### the below is generated on sentry when you create the project
client = Client('http://fb9f9e31ea4f40d48855c603f15a2aa4:
6e968b3d8ba240fcb50072ad9cba0810 at example.com/1')

def logToSentry(event):

    if not event.get('isError') or 'failure' not in event:

    f = event['failure']
    client.captureException((f.type, f.value, f.getTracebackObject()))


Hope this helps,
