Unfortunately, those will probably overrun the default maximum of one
hour per CI job and therefore time out. It is possible to change the
default maximum, but salsa allows no more than two hours; beyond that
the gitlab-runner administrators have to change the configuration. So
that means that the current merge request will only work for things that
are limited to a handful of languages.
I have been working on improving the setup to split out a full build
into multiple jobs -- see
https://salsa.debian.org/wouter/webwml/pipelines/19296 for an example.
Since the timeout is per job and not per pipeline, that would work
around this problem. However, it doesn't seem to be working properly
yet; the "make install" step seems to be calling "wml" occasionally,
which means things take time, and we don't want that (because it would
make things time out). I'm not exactly sure whether that's my fault or
the build system's.
I do intent to try to make this all work properly if the interest is
there, but even so the current merge request should already be somewhat
