Would it be possible to have buildbot watch branches

the /~maria-captains/ directory?

For example:


Sure. It can be configured to do so. Branches are defined using their
complete launchpad address. Buildbot just needs to also be configured
so that it knows what to do with the branch once it has it. For
example, buildbot currently knows what to do with MariaDB 5.1-5.3,
5.5-10.0, Java Client, and C client branches. As part of adding it to
buildbot we would need to add everything that buildbot needs to know
in order to build and test mroonga.

One question: Are we thinking of providing separate Mroonga packages?
Wouldn't it make more sense to include this in MariaDB itself like we
do with other storage engines?

The goal is to make Mroonga a part of the standard MariaDB distribution.

However, we need a separate stage tree to test new features
added by Kentoku, before merging them into the main 10.0.

This is how it works with ConnectSE:
Olivier pushes his changes to 10.0-connect.
When 10.0-connect is green, we merge it into 10.0.
