A simpler approach would be to stick with one build master and add a 
step for each project. It would be like the steps in build 4, but with 
ckan-buildandsmoke.py, licenses-buildandsmoke.py, 
ckanclient-buildandsmoke.py, and so on, instead of those trivial shell 


If one steps fails, the other steps are still run, but the overall build 
result result will be a red bar. That's how the Appropriate Software 
Foundation build bot works (each step runs one part of the foundation 
test suite, which composes all system and service tests into a single 
test suite).


But then you can't trigger building just one thing. Hence the suggestion 
to have several build masters.

Best wishes,
