Re: [cdt-dev] Is there interest in a rewritten managed build?

Speaking as a downstream integrator who is using managed build, my tentative answer is: Probably not, from us.

While managed build is complicated and quirky, it mostly does what we need, and where it doesn’t, we have patches and workarounds in place. It‘s all a big, organically grown mess (some of our early decisions turned out questionable in hindsight), but it works. I am skeptical whether transplanting that mess onto a rewritten base would be worth the effort. What you design to address your gripes will not necessarily also address our gripes, at the same time I do not have time to contribute to designing a system that addresses everyone’s gripes.

What happened to the efforts to build a new managed build system based on core build anyway? (Where I confess I never contributed either.)
