Re: [tycho-user] What are baseline repositories good for?


On a good day, the reproducible qualifiers avoid you churning a new set of unchanged artefacts every build, thereby saving on distribution bandwidth.

However that good day is totally depend on the fairies, since an unsound superficial view of GIT dependencies rather than a true has-it-changed-test is used.

Do not use.

I follow along with the jgit based timestamps, but I dont understand what the baseline repository configuration does. The wiki page sais:

The end result is that build output contains new versions of the artifacts that did change and baseline version of the artifacts that did not.

And "change" meaning version, id and "content". How is "content" defined here?

I will have follow up questions :)
