Just quickly because I've touched on most of these issues in previous
responses, and I'm pretty damn tired right now. ;)
- - Code reviews: +1 I agree with everything you said here Guido.
- - Buildbots: good for what they do, but because they're reactive (and
in our case, quite often not working) they don't solve a problem,
they're an indicator of the problem
- - PQM: right, doesn't scale across multiple platforms, but still
valuable. Guards against broken mainline affecting everybody. E.g.
would have caught the multiprocessing bug that delayed an earlier
release affecting at least Linux and OS X.
- - All three can work together to solve different parts of the problem.
None (IMHO) are enough on their own. I'm skeptical that reviews +
buildbots are enough.
