So, can we put a serious one together and get a build farm!
What exactly do you have in mind when you say "build farm"? A set of
systems running different OSes to test builds (AIX, Solaris, HPUX, Linux
2.6, Windows, etc)?
In the hope this is not again an abuse of the list: If you
take a look at http://build.samba.org/ the hosts listed
there regularly download the latest sources for several
projects, compile them and run tests on them. The
connectivity requirements for the hosts are very minimal:
They only need to be able to rsync out. This has helped us
(the Samba Team) big ways for portability, because many
volunteers can donate free cycles.
This is unquestionably a great idea, one that we need to pursue, and one
that I plan to chat with you Samba guys about in more detail soon. Some
of the ideas we've been planning (self-tuning adaptive caching, etc.)
require platform-specific knowledge at runtime and it's only going to
fly if we can test adequately on a wide range of platforms.
