[[https://www.buildbot.net/][Buildbot]] is a free software continuous integration tool. buildbot.el
is an emacs interface to view build information on a Buildbot
instance. It supports [[https://docs.buildbot.net/latest/relnotes/0.9.0.html][newer versions]]* of Buildbot (>=0.9.0) but not
older versions (<0.9.0) and shows views for branches, revisions,
builds, steps, logs and builders.

It has been tested for the following instances (the urls are to be
used as ~buildbot-host~):
- [[https://buildbot.mariadb.org][mariadb]] (works better with ~(setq buildbot-api-changes-direct-filter t)~)
- [[https://buildbot.python.org/all][python]]
- [[https://buildbot.buildbot.net][buildbot]]
- [[https://buildbot.scummvm.org][scummvm]]
- [[http://build.sagemath.org][sagemath]]
- [[https://buildbot.staging.openwrt.org/images][openwrt]]
- [[https://gkernelci.gentoo.org][gentoo]]
- [[https://buildbot.libsdl.org][SDL]]

  :UPDATED:  [2023-07-15 Sat 16:38]

Entry points:
- ~M-x buildbot-revision-open~ prompts for a revision id (e.g. commit
  hash in git), and opens a view of the revision, including builds
  associated with changes associated with the revision.
- ~M-x buildbot-branch-open~ prompts for a branch name, and opens up a
  view of revisions of this branch.
- ~M-x buildbot-builder-open~ prompts for a builder name from a list
  of available builders, and opens up a view of recent builds by this
- The first time any of these commands is invoked it may take a bit
  longer than usual because it needs to make an extra call to get all

  :UPDATED:  [2023-06-26 Mon 17:04]

- org link integration.
- older buildbot api (not really sure if feasible)
- copy url of the current view
- highlight certain builders (e.g. mandatory for push)
