That'd be great. When you're ready install BuildBot from
http://buildbot.sf.net. It requires Twisted which requires (and
includes a release of) ZopeInterface. Once you have those installed
read (the attached) POST-INSTALL.txt for what to do next (emailing me or
the list with questions/suggestions).

You now need to set up one or more buildbot slave directories using the
buildbot batch file. The "buildbot" (no extention) file should be located
in the "Scripts" directory of your Python install. An example invocation
would look something like this (watch for very long lines):
MY_SLAVE_DIR ....... The directory name in which slave data will be stored
MY_SLAVE_NAME ...... The name you chose for your slave in coordination
with the buildbot.zope.org maintainer.
MY_SLAVE_PASSWORD .. The password for your slave (also given to the
The buildbot.zope.org maintainer will also need to know what software you
wish to test (including trunk/branch), where your Python executable is
located (or just its name if it is on the path), and what operating system
the slave will be running on.
copy wget.exe TO_SOMEWHERE_IN_YOUR_PATH
copy unzip.exe TO_SOMEWHERE_IN_YOUR_PATH
c:\python24\python.exe c:\python24\Scripts\buildbot slave --usepty=0
MY_SLAVE_DIR buildbot.zope.org:8989 MY_SLAVE_NAME MY_SLAVE_PASSWORD
c:\python24\python.exe c:\python24\Scripts\buildbot start MY_SLAVE_DIR
Now cd to MY_SLAVE_DIR\info and edit the "admin" and "host" files.
Once you have verified that your slave is functioning properly, you may
want to put the command to start it in Start/Programs/Startup replacing
python.exe with pythonw.exe (note the "w") so it will run when logged-in
and be invisible.
