Tinderbox currently describes each different build in the list as 'trees' which
is misleading, as some of them grab their subset from the same branch.  They're
all different builds.  Alongside the link to that 'tree'(build) there should be
text specifying what branch that build is grabbing its source from.  I'm not
sure how to get at this...

this is entirely wrong. the term tree is a term used by tinderbox and has
nothing to do with your confused views. futher mconnor is *not* a peer for
anything near this. closest item is update. this is not update.

I'm not a webtools peer, sorry.  This patch doesn't show which branch a build
is using either, it just makes some strings less specific and more confusing
(IMO, of course).

tinderbox picked a nomenclature. changing it is pointless. note that there is
absolutely no way for a tinderbox server to even get the information you desire
or enforce that such information is consistent with the tree being managed.
