v18 v19 102 102 103 103 1. it's more complex than it sounds: It boils down to sending a string on which the remote system calls exec(), but with blocking and potentially damaging ramifications for the running buildslave instance. Steer clear of thoughts of sending compiled Python bytecode across the wire, too. 104 105 104 1. it's generally the wrong solution to the problem you're trying to solve: If the functionality is so complex that it cannot be represented in a few lines of shell script, then most likely that functionality will need to be revision-controlled and tested outside of Buildbot. Which means that it should be in a Python script in version-control somewhere, and Buildbot should be running the code from there.
