Re Item 2:
mechanize was acquired from pypi: http://pypi.python.org/packages/source/m/mechanize/mechanize-0.2.5.tar.gz
Additional software enabling the buildbot / DM Continuous Integration interface includes:
buildbot-master-0.8.8, buildbot-slave-0.8.8, TwistedCore-13.2.0, zope.interface-4.1.1
I am including them in a new Buildbot Installation Guide – currently in my space on confluence.
