Re: FreeBSD BuildBot Slave - I can offer one


Kristian is probably the primary person to talk to about including a
buildbot but I maintain a few for the project and since no one
responded just yet I figured I'd say a few things and try to help. :-)

OK That will probably be helpful...

The basic outline:

1) Install Python (2.4 or later)
2a) Install Twisted (twistedmatrix.com 8.0.x or later) - need Core,
Mail, Web and Words (possibly Conch too)
2b) Install ZopeInterface (http://www.zope.org/Products/ZopeInterface)
3) Install all the necessary compiler/build components.
4) Install Buildbot
5) Install Bazaar and make sure you can clone from the main project
6) Get a username/login and password from the buildmaster (Kristian)
7) Verify your buildbot can talk to the buildbot master instance and
can run builds.
