My new buildbot

I've added some buildbot instances on various architectures to my new buildbot at http://perl514.cpanel.net/build/. I needed about a day to set it up.

Tested projects are so far: perl5, rakudo, nqp, parrot and p2.

The buildslaves are currently: centos5 (old system), cygwin, cygwin64, darwin (my macbook air), debian (fresh), mingw32 (strawberry), ppc (an old powerbook)

And soon: mingw64 (python refuses mingw64, demands msvc), freebsd, openbsd, solaris10 (intel 64bit)

All the slaves initiate the connection to the bot on some private tcp port, so they can all stay behind my firewall. Most of them are some vm's on my devbox, and I start/stop them at random.

The setup included installing python 2.7, setuptools, and then easy_install buildbot-slave. The configuration is a bit tricky, but it's python code, not just some data format, and not jenkins.

I currently only watch the main branches, not smoke-me. The biggest problem is that some projects are not "remake clean": git update + configure + make + make test might need a make clean or even a git clean -dxf before. This is fine if your smokers are big and fast, but my smokers are small and slow.

The UI is also not the best so far. I want to collect the projects into BuildSets, and eventually add bench mark data.

I already collected and fixed a couple of previously undetected bugs.

Eventually I'll add random CPAN module testing, against all my installed major perls on all these architectures. My old smoker just smoked the stable B::C against latest blead changes daily. And from time I get some cpantesters fail reports, but nothing helps in smoking beforehand and at once. There's some interface to add random builds via 'try'.

This is the buildbot master cfg:
