    * Require a "hostname" argument to the build server.  But we get to remove
      it as a config option from CONFIG.py then, which is good :)

    * Implement Additional Package Architectures support.  This is essentially
      an look-aside file listing packages and other arches these packages should
      build on, but that a whole distribution isn't built on.  Examples include
      OpenSSL on SPARC, where sparcv8 and sparcv9 optimized builds are produced,
      but not an entire sparcv9 distro.  See the "addl_pkg_arches" directory
      for an example file, and the CONFIG.py file for more information.

    * Simplify build client tracking on the server.  There is now only 1 instance
      of a BuildClient (formerly BuildClientInstance) class per build client.
      Previously there was one instance for each arch the client supported.
      Since at this time we don't allow more than one build job per client,
      its un-necessary to track anything per-client-per-arch.

    * Return the build job UID when queuing a job

    * Start jobs on clients immediately when creating them, instead of putting
      the server-side tracking object in 'initialize' state first and then
      starting the job on the client in the next process() iteration.

    * Do some locking when the BuildClient class gets the job the client
      is currently running.  Because BuildJob instances run in their own threads,
      the BuildJob could be starting a new job on the BuildClient while the
      BuildClient instance is getting status.  This could result in a race
      condition and potentially two jobs thinking they have started concurrently.

    * Add a "Getting Started" section to the README file

 Fedora Extras Build System
 
-The build system is composed of a single build server, and multiple build clients.  Both clients and server must be on the same LAN, or at least have access to the same shared storage.  Clients run an XMLRPC server to which the build-server delivers build jobs.  The build server runs an XMLRPC server to allow submission of jobs, and to retrieve basic status information about both clients and the build system as a whole.
+System Requirements:
+    - Python 2.3 or 2.4
+    - m2crypto
+    - sqlite python bindings
+    - mock (http://www.dulug.duke.edu/~skvidal/mock/)

+Getting Started
+------------------------------------------
+
+
+0) Follow the instructions at the bottom of this file titled "Configuring SSL for your Build System"
+1) Put the server somewhere, lets call it SERVERDIR
+2) Copy the server Key, Cert, and CA Cert to the SERVERDIR/certs directory
+3) Things to modify in the server's CONFIG.py:
+    - Update the Key, Cert, and CA Cert file options to point to the files in step (2)
+    - Modify the 'targets' option to add/remove the arches and targets you'll be building
+    - Modify the 'builders' option to point to the build clients you'll be using.  Note the "https".
+    - If you want to do simple SRPM builds, set the 'use_srpm_not_cvs' option to true
+4) On the client, put the client somehwere, lets call it CLIENTDIR
+5) Create a user for the client.  The client _cannot_ run as 'root' (since mock cannot run as 'root')
+6) Copy the client Key, Cert, and CA Cert to the CLIENTDIR/certs directory
+7) Things to modify in the client's CONFIG.py:
+    - Modify the 'distro' and 'repo' options to match the targets you've configured in /etc/mock/.  These targets are usually in the form of "distro-target-arch-repo".  'arch' and 'target' are passed by the build system dynamically, but 'distro' and 'repo' are hardcoded in the config file.  Examples are "fedora-development-i386-core" and "fedora-development-i386-extras".
+8) Configure the mock target files in /etc/mock.  You only need one target file for each major arch you support.  For example, you don't need separate 'ia32e' or 'amd64' config files, since these just use the normal 'x86_64' config file
+8) Start the client, NOT as 'root'.  ex: "build-client 127.0.0.1 i386 i686"
+9) Start the server.  ex: "build-server 127.0.0.1"
+
+If the server finds the client and prints out its address, then everything is well and you can start to submit jobs:
+
+[localhost]# python
+>>> import xmlrpclib
+>>> s = xmlrpclib.ServerProxy("http://<address of your build server>:8887")
+
+If you are using CVS builds, you then do:
+>>> s.enqueue("dcbw", "NetworkManager", "NetworkManager-0_4-11_cvs20050404", "devel")
+
+If you are using simple SRPM builds, you do:
+>>> s.enqueue_srpm("dcbw", "NetworkManager", "/path/to/NetworkManager-0.4-11_cvs20050404.src.rpm", "devel")
+
+The format of the enqueue command is:
+
+enqueue[_srpm](username, package_name, CVS tag _OR_ SRPM path, target)

 All communication with the build server is done through SSL to ensure the identity of each party.  Both the XMLRPC server and the result file server are SSL-enabled, and require SSL certificates and keys to operate.  See later section in this document on how to configure SSL certificates for your build system.

-The BuildClientManager object serves as a central location for all tracking and status information about each build job on each arch.  It creates an BuildClientInstance for each supported architecture of each build client.  The BuildClientInstance keeps track of specific jobs building on that single architecture on that single build client.  It also serves as the XMLRPC client of the remote build client, proxying status information from it.

-BuildJobs must request that the BuildClientManager create a new BuildClientJob for each build on each architecture the BuildJob needs.  If there is an available build client (since build clients only build one job at a time across all arches they support), the BuildClientManager will pass the request to the arch-specific BuildClientInstance, which creates the new arch-specific BuildClientJob, and pass it back through the BuildClientManager to the parent BuildJob.  If there is no available build client for the request, the BuildJob must periodically re-issue the build request to the BuildClientManager.

If there is no available build client for the request, the BuildJob must periodically re-issue the build request to the BuildClientManager.
 
-BuildClientManager has a periodic processing routine that is called from the BuildMaster thread.  This processing routine calls the BuildClientInstance.process() routine on each BuildClientInstance, which in turn updates its view of the remote build client's status.  Thus, the BuildClientManager, through each BuildClientInstance, knows the status and currently building job on each remote build client.

 BuildJobs track a single SRPM build through the entire build system.  They are created from the BuildMaster thread whenever the BuildMaster finds a job entry in the sqlite database with the status of 'waiting'.  BuildJobs proceed through a number of states: "initialize", "checkout", "make_srpm", "prep", "building", "finished", "cleanup", "failed", and "needsign".
