OK, so I guess it's just setting the buildbot stuff up.

Greetings from England... :-)

I doubt it'll be a huge issue, I just didn't want to end up doing
nothing more than delivering 5 more red boxes on the buildbot status

buildbots as more of a community effort means that there's a better
chance of issues being fixed quickly.
