Re: [cross-project-issues-dev] Hudson job keeps rebuilding

I know there was a problem where a Gerrit Plugin was triggering jobs
(unrelated to Gerrit) but as far as I know, that was disabled/removed from
the production Hudson system. (Sorry, don't know bug number).
Plus, I had a case where "URL Content Change" trigger stopped working
right, and those jobs were building over and over again, even though no
content change (bug 363891 [1]).

In the past, I've sometimes found it helps "odd Hudson behavior" to "wipe
out workspace", essentially resetting what ever is there. To get to that
option, click on the job, click on "Workspace" (on left, upper part of
page), which displays the workspace, but also reveals a "Wipe out
workspace" option. I'm sure it is mostly "superstitious behavior" ... but
has seemed to help in some cases.

In any case, I'd encourage you see if any existing bugs are related to your
observations [2] and if not, to open one [3] being sure to make note "it is
on Eclipse Infrastructure".

Good luck,

One of my Hudson jobs, , repeatedly sees
Git changes (SCM
trigger) that do not exist. It always reports (a) Started by SCM change and
(b) No changes. But then it triggers a build
rather than just exit. I'm polling for SCM changes every 2 hours. That
results in 12 unnecessary builds per day ;-(

This strange behaviour started yesterday. Does anybody see the same
