The reason is I'm not 100% certain what I need to do to deploy them, and deploying them involves putting configuration I don't understand onto the live buildbot server, possibly causing the entire live buildbot server to stop working. I guess I just need to try it, and if there are problems, revert to a known-good config and ask for help.

Please don't feel like you have to do all this alone. I'm sure the whole 
infrastructure team is willing to help. (Would it be possible to set up 
remote access?)
