3.4 BuildRequest

A BuildRequest is a request to build a specific revision of the source code (specified by a source stamp) on a single Builder. Each Builder runs the BuildRequest as soon as it can (i.e. when an associated buildslave becomes free). BuildRequests are prioritized from oldest to newest, and when a buildslave becomes free, the Builder with the oldest BuildRequest is run.

The BuildRequest may be mergeable with other compatible BuildRequests. Builds that are triggered by incoming Changes will generally be mergeable. Builds that are triggered by user requests are generally not, unless they are multiple requests to build the latest sources of the same branch.
