Much better. Only the usage of the word "build" is confusing. For
people, who see the Bitten for the first time, "Build" can mean
number, binary package, Makefile configuration, revision in
repository, tag or something else. In this respect "to process build"
is something mysterious, "to claim a build and submit results" is
better if you already know about master/slave communication and phrase
"to download build configuration and submit results" would make it
even more clear about the roles of master/slave from the start. The
only question I would like to ask at this point - what kind of results
are accepted by server - could these be binaries or just plain text
metrics? This info in installation part would, of course, better be
seen as a reference.
