That's how BuildBot works. The master machine has the configuration for
all the bots which it transmits to each to control what and how they run

PS. To answer a much earlier question about whatever happened to using
buildbot for Boost. I've been swamped since last Summer, and the machine
that was my Linux server only came back online recently. So I haven't
the free time to work on it.
