[users at bb.net] Specify different branches for different repos

Hi Jared,

thanks for your reply.
I've read some docs on the codebases but I still have some doubts:

1. is it mandatory to have a codebaseGenerator or can I simply specify a
codebase dictionary as showed here in my force scheduler?

2. in the source steps of my build, which parameters still need to be
specified (repourl, branch, etc...) and which are read from the codebase?
If one param (e.g. branch) is both present in the codebase and specified as
source step property, which one will have the precedence?
