That's an eye catching subject line,
But, it's only a play on words.
What I mean is that I have incorporated
Bjorn's Ganymatic build script using Cruisecontrol and the "site contribution"
files so that builds
are started when ever a change is checked
in. So, there's no need to have the builds scheduled every night.
It might run 5 times a day, it might
not run for 3 weeks ... it all depends on when changes are committed to
in the CVS org.eclipse.ganymede.sitecontributions
module. Many of you probably noticed this already, but
thought I'd write this note, just so
you'd know what was happening.
But there is another URL that may be
handy at times (which is linked from that main page).
The Cruise Control server used will
be the same one that which Orbit uses, so if you look at
http://build.eclipse.org:9777/dashboard/dashboard?s=1 you'll see the Ganymatic project listed
there along with Orbit projects.
One way this will be handy is for those
times when the build seemed to fail for some random
unexplainable reason. You can press
the "force build" button on that dashboard to just have it
build again. (I'll leave this on, as
long as there's no abuse, or constant presses of the button).
The timer is currently set to 1 hour,
which means it check's every hour if there are any changes.
So, after you commit something, a build
might start in 5 minutes (if it is near the end of that hour) or might
not build for 55 minutes, if the hour
cycle has just started. And, in some cases, if there's an Orbit build
already running, it will have to wait
for that to finish, but those don't take long ... 30 or 45 minutes,
Most of you will never need to know
any of that, just know that after you commit something, you should
check back in a few hours to see how
it did ... you no longer have to wait till the next day to find it its
Let us know how you like it I've
know some people just love routine and predictability so much, that
that'd prefer to be told when they had
to commit code because then there's a hard stop ... otherwise,
some of them might be tempted to work
all night long! But, don't do that! Set your own deadlines
whenever you'd like, if you work better
