Re: Status of some daily D-I builds

[ Context for debian-wb-team: This thread started because not all
autobuilder setups for d-i are currently working properly and I tried
to figure out why but got stuck  because I could not figure out how
these build are triggered. ]

Note for debian-wb-team: The problem with these builds is that they
don't fail in the usual way where the buildd sends a log of the failed
build ready for inspection, but that they just don't upload any new
builds to d-i.debian.org and there is to my knowledge no log
whatsoever to show the reason of this.

This is indeed suboptimal. :-( Would it be possible to give some
(ideally more than one person to not create bottlenecks) persons from
the d-i team access to the buildds where d-i daily builds are built so
they can investigate these issues themself?

Can someone from the buildd team shed some more light on this. If this
is documented somwhere and I just didn't find the right place you can
also just point me to the docs. I'm also happy to just read the
scripts actually triggering the builds.

Are the builds scheduled by a cron job or is there something else
scheduling the  builds?

What do you mean by the "documented" way? Does it run some/all of the
build targets in instaler/build or does it use the
installer/debian/rules build-images target? 

Ever tried. Ever failed. No matter.
Try again. Fail again. Fail better.
