Hi Blars et al.,
has anyone every considered a check in the buildd infrastructure to
alert someone (buildd admin and/or others) if a build is taking too long
(eg openoffice usually takes between 2-3 hours to build and the current
build has been building for 10 hours+). Something like a database entry
or a database of either previous build times or last build time. As a
way to not have a buildd tied up with an obvious build issue and thus
allow the issue to be address sooner thus alowing more buildd
throughput. I'd help but I have neither the skill nor the access to
buildd infrastrure (as I'm not a DD or a buildd admin) but try to give
ideas that I feel are helpful.
Anyway, hope those buildd (and thier admins) are humming along smoothly!
