Know of any projects that need Pybots buildslaves?
This is a question that's been asked twice already on the Pybots mailing list, or in emails addressed directly to me. Every time I answered that I don't really know any, and I advised the people asking the question to go through the list of their favorite Python projects, and pick some that they'd like to test. Or go through the list of major Web frameworks and pick some.
Anyway -- maybe a better way is to ask all the readers of this blog: do you have a project that you'd like to test in the Pybots buildbot farm, but maybe you don't have the hardware to run the buildslave on? Then let me know, or even better, let the Pybots mailing list know. There are people such as Jeff McNiel and Skip Montanaro who have hardware and resources, and are looking for projects to test.
BTW, the Pybots farm now has 6 buildslaves (the 6th was courtesy of Elliot Murphy, who contributed an AMD-64 Ubuntu Dapper box running the MySQLdb tests), with 3 or 4 buildslaves on the way.
Thanks a lot to all the people who have contributed or will contribute soon. It's very rewarding to see the Python community responding in an enthusiastic manner to a call to do better testing of Python projects.

Considering we've had a ticket for this for 6 months, I'd say, yes, it would be great if CherryPy were tested. It has no required dependencies outside Python itself, and should run on most platforms with Python 2.3+.
Is that all you're looking for? I got the impression from previous missives that there was quid pro quo involved (as in "set up a slave and then maybe we'll talk about testing your project"). If that's not the case, then I'm sorry for not mentioning CP sooner.
Thanks for responding. The good news is that Elliot Murphy has volunteered to run the CherryPy tests on his AMD-64 Ubuntu Dapper box. Stay tuned for more info!
