Likewise.  I switched to buildbot from a home-brewed Python script
earlier this year.  The old script ran several nightly builds
sequentially on a single machine.  I needed to spread the testing over
a bunch of machines to speed things up, and also wanted to add
on-commit builds.  It looked like it would be easier to adopt buildbot
rather than try to satisfy the new requirements with my own script.

As Marious say, buildbot it powerful, but it was a lot of work to set up.
