I wonder if anyone ever considered using memcached as an optional
backend for ccached?
Here is the issue we're considering. In our C++ project we have a number
of developers doing their own local compilations. When any updates
occurs (e.g. they update to the latest source code from scm) the
compilations are the same for all the machines. Sure ccache is great
when you re-do the compilation, but here the compilation being re-done
on a number of machines. Using memcached would allow us to have a truly
distributed cache that would both help developers and machines in the
build farm to speed up work.
What do you guys think?
