Ok, I did that, we will see how it goes.
Buildbot is suffering a lot from insufficient resources, one of my test builds
has been waiting for > 6 hours, and has not started yet :-/. So some patience
is needed.

For now, I opted to just do this from scratch in every build. It won't be run
that often anyway, I suppose.

Maybe it would make sense to do this in a permanent VM (one that is updated in
each build and is not reset for each new build). We have a couple that do that
already, but it will need some dedicated copies of the VM images. I think you
were already discussing this with Daniel, related to keepting the VM
up-to-date with Debian sid? The build could then just run apt-get dist-upgrade
at the start.

Ok, I see, I'm not really much familiar with .deb build infrastructure.

Here is the template we use to send for new build slaves:

From: XXX-from
Subject: Buildbot slave account details
To: XXX-to

Thank you very much for offering to run a Buildbot slave builder for MariaDB!

I have created a slave account with these details:

    host: hasky.askmonty.org
    port: 9989
    slave name: XXX-name
    password: XXX-passwd
    build directory: XXX-dir

You will need this information when setting up the Buildbot slave. Generic
information about setting up can be found in the Buildbot manual:


Just grab me on IRC or send mail if you have questions. And thanks again for
offering to help the MariaDB project in this way!

You should be able to install buildbot with apt-get. If you inform Daniel
about how many buildslaves you will be running, he should be able to set up
the accounts inside buildbot and inform you about the values you need for the

(I am not sure if this would be one buildslave doing both trusty and sid? Or
two buildslaves (on the same machine, using VMs or chroots), one for each? Or
just one buildslave doing one of them only? Anyway, either could work,
whatever makes most sense).
