Description Ville Skyttä 2005-12-01 08:38:19 EST
Submitted noarch jobs seem to be built on the ppc build server, which is the
slowest of them and a potential bottleneck.  It'd be better to have them built
on hammer{1,2,3}

adding dan.

Comment 2 Dan Williams 2005-12-01 10:22:02 EST
They will build on the first available builder, which happens to be ppc1 right
now .  There's no ordering to the builder list or preference weights for
builders yet.

While that's simple to add, would depsolving help out here?  If the rush to get
a job done is so you can start another job that depends on the first one, I
think depsolving would fix this since you could just queue both jobs and walk away.
Comment 3 Ville Skyttä 2005-12-01 13:06:12 EST
Yeah, depsolving helps in some cases.  This is not that urgent at the moment,
changing to RFE for future "rush hours"; for example it could be beneficial to
have this implemented a bit before FC5 time when there's prolly going to be a
lot more builds going on than right now.
Comment 4 Dan Williams 2006-03-20 07:38:43 EST
Should be in CVS HEAD, won't make it to STABLE_4 since it requires a config file
format change.
