Aawwwhhh... Now *I* wanted to do that task (with the required hand holding,
of course ;)

Now Im confused. Why would you want to run the same code coverage on a tb,
when those results are already provided by a Jenkins build ? Doesnt it make
more sense to 'just' have one box that (in this case, triggered by
Jenkins), takes care of all your code coverage needs ?

Anyway, I guess I could, once I verified that it works as intended, put the
contents of my .tb directory in a subdirectory of
buildbot.git/lcov-report/tinderbox, accompanied with a small README
explaining how you could go about integrating the two ?

And the one lacking feature of the current way is of course that the
reports gets generated, but you still have to take care of the uploading
them somewhere useful part. (assuming youve done that with Jenkins, and not
by modifying the script).

I guess it's just that I dont see the 'tinderbox use cases' as clearly as
you anymore, especially when now youve already got code coverage working in
the Jenkins case.
