Description Ralf Corsepius 2005-06-27 04:55:23 EDT
As requested by Warren on FUDCon:

Description of problem:
Inside of a checked out copy of a package in FE CVS
"make build"
sometimes/occasionally silently fails.

How reproducible:
Occasionally (~1-2 times out of 3)

Steps to Reproduce:
Run "make build"
* CVS/ssh login is being prompted.
* The local copy of common/tobuild is being added a corresponding line.

* cvs updating common/tobuild shows that common/tobuild doesn't appear to be
updated on the build-server.
* No mail is being sent to extras-commits-list.

Subsequently running "make build" several times, sometimes lets the build
request succeed (2 CVS/ssh login prompts during "make build", a notice "mail
being sent to extras-commits" appears, a mail from extras-commits arrives)

Additional info:
Verbally confirmed by other FE maintainers on FUDCon.

This is known and a bit annoying, yes.  Not sure of a good fix in the framework
of the CVS based stuff in use right now.  What's being worked on to move to an
XML-RPC based queuer should actually be able to fix this for real.
Comment 2 Jeremy Katz 2005-07-29 15:43:18 EDT
This should be happier with 'make plague'.  'make build' is planning on being
switched over to use what is now 'make plague' next week-ish.
