These are notes on the (labourious) process of upgrading Buildbot and bbmass on the zone. Buildbot is a bitch to upgrade, since it essentially doesn't offer much backwards compat at all :(

Installing / Upgrading Buildbot on the zone

sudo mkdir /local/buildbot-0.7.5
sudo gcp -arl /local/lib /local/buildbot-0.7.5/lib

cd /home/buildbot/src/Twisted-2.5.0/zope.interface-3.3.0
sudo python ./setup.py install --home=/local/buildbot-0.7.5

cd /home/buildbot/src/Twisted-2.5.0
PYTHONPATH=/local/buildbot-0.7.5/lib/python sudo python ./setup.py install --home=/local/buildbot-0.7.5

cd /home/buildbot/src/buildbot-0.7.5
PYTHONPATH=/local/buildbot-0.7.5/lib/python sudo python ./setup.py install --home=/local/buildbot-0.7.5

Upgrading the continuous-testing Buildbot

sudo ln -s /local/buildbot-0.7.5 /local/buildbot-live

cd /home/buildbot/bots
sudo mv sa sa.old

cd /home/buildbot/slaves
sudo mv sol10-perl561 sol10-perl561.old
sudo mv zone-sol10 zone-sol10.old

sudo vi /etc/init.d/buildbot
        [update to add:]

PATH=/local/buildbot-live/bin:$PATH
PYTHONPATH=/local/buildbot-live/lib/python 
export PATH PYTHONPATH

        [and invoke all buildbots as

nice su buildbot -c "buildbot $1 /home/buildbot/slaves/zone-sol10"

        adding the "su buildbot" part]

        [as "buildbot" user]

PATH=/local/buildbot-live/bin:$PATH
PYTHONPATH=/local/buildbot-live/lib/python 
export PATH PYTHONPATH

buildbot create-master /home/buildbot/bots/sa

        [as normal user again]

sudo mv /home/buildbot/bots/sa.old/master.cfg /home/buildbot/bots/sa
sudo vi /home/buildbot/bots/sa/master.cfg

        [read "NEWS" file from buildbot.sf.net, painfully rewrite
        config file to match new formats, swear a lot]

Upgrading the bbmass Buildbot

sudo ln -s /local/buildbot-0.7.5 /local/bbmass-buildbot-live

        [update to add:]

PATH=/local/bbmass-buildbot-live/bin:$PATH
PYTHONPATH=/local/bbmass-buildbot-live/lib/python 
export PATH PYTHONPATH
sudo chmod 1777 /home/buildbot/bots

        [and invoke all buildbots as
