Oops. I wouldn't have expected that tracebacks propagate that far back.
This was your hg client talking to the remote hg client executing a
post-push hook talking to buildbot raising an exception (for there no
being builder category for 2.5).

Your changesets were accepted, anyway.

Yes, this is a known limitation. Please don't make any changes to the
2.5 branch unless they are security fixes (changing the copyright
is fine, but I'd rather avoid even documentation changes). If you
want to build the 2.5 branch, check it out from subversion.
