Details

(Whiteboard: [buildmasters][buildbot])

We're currently on 0.8.2. Upgrading to 0.8.3 includes a fix for how a master maintains it claim over active jobs. This is used to detect, reclaim & retrigger jobs whenever another master dies. 

This came up over the weekend after the colo outage, when we saw jobs being run, and then being run again an hour later.
We could also just backport the fix.  I only vaguely remember which fix you're talking about, so I'll need to look at the buildbot revision history to see what it was.
Ah, not the change I was thinking of, but a good change to merge all the same.

Catlee, what do you think about using 0.8.3 vs. continuing to backport into 0.8.2?

0.8.3 is a relatively minor update from 0.8.2 I think?  If so, we should plan on upgrading to 0.8.3, since 0.8.4 is going to be a bigger jump, and will take longer to validate.

Found in triage. I think this belongs in PlatformSupport, but please bounce if I guessed incorrectly.
