Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 161774
"make build" silently doesn't issue build request
Last modified: 2007-04-18 13:28:39 EDT
As requested by Warren on FUDCon:
Description of problem:
Inside of a checked out copy of a package in FE CVS
sometimes/occasionally silently fails.
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)
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.
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.
