Could we use buidbot on our SVN repo (tags)
-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
I have just started reading planet.haskell.org and seen a post about the
the Yhc project installing a buildbot.
Since the issue of automated tests on tagged versions has been risen
before and an implementation exists already, do you think it would make
sense to install a buildbot which should do automated package
building, testing (and could help in case of upload requests)?
I think this could help us a lot as a group and make us be more
organized. We could make sure that we can build our packages on more
arches (at least i386+powerpc, since these are the main ones for gaming).
Since automated building would fail if things are incomplete, we will
have to enforce some things like public availability of orig tarballs,
orderly work and so on.
The main question would be, if accepted, if we have a machine (or more)
that can do this building. AFAICT the build machines need not to be
always on-line (nice feature) and builds can be pending.
Note: I haven't read what does one have to do to impose restrictions on
building (eg: only on tags commits), or what are the requirements for
such a build machine.
