Not to interrupt you you conversation but I am interested in setting up a buildbot on one of my Macs. Is there any documentations or advise that is different from that of a linux machine? Any advise would be appreciated.
Assuming you mean "set up a build slave for Python testing"...
Here's what I did. I was installing on a Tiger machine, which comes with Python 2.3.5, so the first thing I did was to install Xcode 2.5, the latest release for Tiger. I also needed Subversion, so I downloaded and installed that. Later versions of OS X Xcode include Subversion, so you won't need to do it separately if you're using those.
I then installed Python 2.6.5 from python.org, which winds up in /usr/local/bin, and modified my PATH to put /usr/local/bin on it. I downloaded the source bundles for Twisted, zope.interface, and buildbot, and installed them in that order -- "sudo python setup.py install" works fine for each of them.
After that, I followed the instructions on the Wiki at http://wiki.python.org/moin/BuildBot. Create a buildbot account, make sure /usr/local/bin is on the PATH of the buildbot account, and issue the commands shown there.
