I found that the retry parameter of source.Git in buildbot.steps does
not work at all. If the buildbot failed to checkout source code from Git, it can not retry the next time. Instead of retry to checkout source code, the buildbot throw out an exception and causes the builder failed.
Can you file a bug? I didn't realize there *was* retry behavior - what is the purpose of this? To support checkouts over flaky connections?
It looks like the immediate bug could be fixed (only os.mkdir(..) if not os.path.exists(..)), but it really should be tested, and there might be larger problems beyond this one.
