I think in this context, "stable" just means "keeps a connection to the buildbot master and doesn't blow up when told to build" :). As such, I'm ready to get you added to the fleet whenever you are.
Yep, and from a PEP 11 perspective, it's fine to have the order be:
1. add the new buildbot worker while it's still red 2. make the changes needed to turn it green in 3.X 3. keep it green for future releases of 3.X+
There just needs to be enough lead time between step 1 and the release of 3.Xb1 to land the compatibility fixes without causing problems for the release manager (and you're currently fine on that front with respect to 3.7).
