I find the names of the current buildbots a bit confusing.
It is not immediately obvious to me what they do.
It would be easier to have something regular so for example we could
use more the IRC feature of buildbot.
I propose to rename them to:
NB prefix if they are scheduled at an interval (each night/week)
stable suffix for 'branch' (i think stable makes more sense than branch)
contrib suffix if the buildbot *builds* (and not 'uses') contribs.
Basically that removes the obvious "Trunk" (as opposed to stable), that
removes "Cross" for windows build, and it gives a consistent scheme.
So with this scheme the continuous buildbots would be:
And the scheduled buildbots would be (with NB- prefix)
And stable, scheduled bots:
What do you think?
I can't tell if we'd lose the build history with this renaming but this
wouldn't harm us if we did anyway.
I disabled the continuous branch builds because they were broken.
At least they didn't react to commits to the branch, but they did react
to commits in vlc.git instead.
I think we don't need continous builds for branch because we don't add
new features, and if we do we test them in master before.
Finally it would be awesome if vlc-build reports build status on irc
itself without us asking.

Also someone needs to reboot veda, or to install a MacOSX 10.5 PPC SDK
on jones so we can cross compile PPC builds
