force-builds.py is no longer in exarkun's sandbox Link to the browse code view because the download link has to be a specific revision.

Using Buildbot

Always run buildbot against a branch before merging it it trunk.

  1. Get the force-builds.py.
  2. Run the script on your branch with python force-builds.py /branches/<branch name> '<Comment>'
    • Note the forward slash before 'branches' and the lack of a forward slash after the branch name
  3. Look at the results at the URL http://buildbot.twistedmatrix.com/boxes-supported?branch=/branches/<branch name>
    • The latest trunk build can been viewed at http://buildbot.twistedmatrix.com/boxes-supported?branch=/trunk
  4. For complicated patches or ones that are likely to tickle cross-platform problems, it's useful to link to buildbot results in the ticket to show that the patch doesn't break any builds.
