> That's great, thanks. I would suggest updating (and where applicable renaming) the existing buildbot ports. I would not make new "buildbot2" ports, since buildbot 2.x is not different from buildbot 1.x; rather, buildbot 0.8 and earlier is different from buildbot 0.9 and later.

Once we have the new ports working it should be trivial for anyone of
us to take care of this renaming part.
And yes, I would somehow rename the existing ports to buildbot-0.8 or
so, and make buildbot whatever the current version is.

- The buildbot-worker now has a different name than the old
buildbot-slave, so there we won't even have the name conflict (it
would still be nice to provide consistent naming though, so 0.8 suffix
sounds reasonable).
- Most of what's in buildbot would probably be packages as a python
module (I guess?).

We can discuss further once Rajdeep submits the ports. (To Rajdeep:
it's also not a problem to submit what you currently have as a Draft
