I have not explored the buildbot JSON API yet. Buildbot is certainly not designed for what we're using it for: It has no idea that different builds on a builder are for different ports, so it would have no way of giving you, for example, a list of builds for a particular port. The web interface gives you the option to see only "failing builders" but that only means a builder whose last build failed; it does not mean show every build on this builder that failed. I don't know if maybe the API provides this feature while the web interface does not.
