[darcs-users] buildbot once again

Way to go! Good luck getting solid buildbots working.
Honestly, I don't want to point fingers, but I lost motivation to
maintain buildslaves or buildmaster because I perceived the darcs
developers as not caring too much if they broke the tests or if they
wrote code which had no tests. I am nowadays imbued with the culture
of "test-driven development". If people write code without first
having a failing test, or if they fix bugs without a regression test
or if they refactor code without having solid coverage, then I get
the strong feeling that their code is destined to be hopelessly buggy.
Anyway, I might contribute more help for the darcs buildbot again in
the future, but not right now -- super busy with other stuff. But, I
will definitely try to give you the benefit of any knowledge that I
have about buildbot config. I assume you're starting with a copy of
the buildmaster config that Eric Kow and I worked on, right?
Okay, chat later.
