Branko's referring to my project to try and cleanup up the buildbot builders to
get them have some consistency. By that I mean the following:
* Similar build bot setup patterns, I'd like to see the setup in the master
config be nearly identical for all the builders. This doesn't mean all the
bots need to do the same tests or use the same dependencies. Each builder is
still going to have all of their own scripts.
* Have all the builders get their scripts from Subversion
(trunk/tools/buildbot/slaves) in an automated way, allowing any of us to
disable tests or tweak the testing.
I completely agree that the build should be repeatable, we could get some of
that by using separate installs of the dependencies just for the bot, but I
think we want to test OS provided dependencies as well. So at least some of
the bots, reproducibility comes down to someone not screwing with the installed
