I've been starting to get some of the buildbots working again. There
was some massive problem on May 25 where a ton of extra files were
left around. I can't remember if I saw something about that at the
NFS sprint or not.
There is a lingering problem that I can't fix on all the boxes. Namely:
Should we always do that step before we build on the buildbots? The
warning about Setup.dist being newer than Setup is displayed. I can
understand why we wouldn't want to unconditionally overwrite a user's
modified Setup. However, for the buildbots, it seems safer to always
Any objections? Any ideas for the best way to implement this? A
separate BB step for Unix clients? In the makefile?
Martin, I would have fixed it on your Solaris box, but I don't think I
can get access to the buildbot's account.
