Thanks for the comments.  I agree 120% more specifics and details are needed.  
I'm not sure how I'm going to fit more in; it's already bursting out of the 
time slot.  I'll find a way though :)

In the audio, and in the eventual talk, I spend about five minutes explaining 
the buildbot configuration slide near the end (time well spent I think).  To 
get the most bang for the buck, what I want to do is find some way to include a 
second, more complex example configuration, that includes code coverage and 
perhaps static source checking (e.g. pylint).   I'm afraid I won't be able to 
go into fine detail about trial, though.
