Review Request: BuildBot - build/test cycle automation

BuildBot is a system to automate the compile/test cycle required
by most software projects to validate code changes. By automatically
rebuilding and testing the tree each time something has changed, build
problems are pinpointed quickly, before other developers are inconvenienced
by the failure. The guilty developer can be identified and harassed without
human intervention. By running the builds on a variety of platforms,
developers who do not have the facilities to test their changes everywhere
before checkin will at least know shortly afterwards whether they have broken
the build or not. Warning counts, lint checks, image size, compile time, and
other build parameters can be tracked over time, are more visible, and are
therefore easier to improve.
See bug 197565, one of these should be closed as a dupe.
Great, submitted 8 hours before mine...
I guess we can close this one so I can took the chance to review Michael's one.
thanks a lot for pointing that out.
