Re: [dtp-dev] Recommended builds?


DTP has used a number of types of builds in the past (nightly, integration,
iteration, stable, etc.) and for DTP 1.5 we're trying to adjust according
to adopter needs. One thing we're aiming for is an "integration" build as
soon as possible after platform milestones (see "Release Milestones" in for details).

For your case, are you looking for more frequent builds (say, weekly) that
have been generally smoke tested on the target platform? If so, then the
nightly builds aren't a bad place to start (we don't post builds if they
are seriously broken), though testing coverage varies depending upon
committer availability. We'd be happy to add a weekly integration build
(where "integration" means fairly well tested over a 24 period with the
latest integration builds of our dependencies), if that would help your
project. Please let us know your thoughts.

I thought I'd ask here, in case I'm missing something, but does DTP not
have weekly "Integration Builds" (toward your 1.5).

What's a consuming project to do? Just pick up the latest nightly?  Or, are
they there somewhere, and just not on

Thanks for any advice.
