+Running the site
+The current build farm site is written in Python. It
+manages a directory with raw build logs that get parsed and
+displayed when viewing individual builds.
+A sqlite database is used to store metadata about builds
+(to prevent rereading all the logs when e.g. creating
+the summary page). Information about the build farm machines
+and their owners can also be found in the sqlite database.
+You will need to have python-storm (our ORM), sqlite
+and python-dulwich (pure-Python Git implementation) installed.
+We don't use any fancy webby frameworks, everything just
+outputs raw HTML.
+To run the web site locally, run:
+ % python -m buildfarm.web.__init__
+For build machine management, you can use the cli tool ./admin.py.
+It should be fairly self-explanatory.
+Logs are initially uploaded to data/upload/. Once they are processed
+and an entry has been created in the database for them, they are
+moved over to data/oldrevs/. After they have been moved they should only be
+accessed when the full build log output is viewed.
+There are some unit tests for the build farm objects. Run them using:
+ % python -m unittest buildfarm.tests.test_suite
