Hi Utkarsh, Nice! Thanks a lot for the pointer. I very much agree with you that the debate has to be emptied from emotions if possible. My goal has never been to point finger at anyone, but try to fix a reoccurring situation which I would like to avoid. Running the script shows that 279 reverse (build?) dependencies are affected by mock. This clearly isn't something one wants to run on a personal computer, and even less a test which one wants to run sequentially. Has any thought went into having some kind of runners running on a cloud to run these tests, and maybe plug this into Salsa's CI to run it automatically? I'd very much would love to set this up, at least as a first experimentation on a bunch of package of the DPMT. Your thoughts? Cheers, Thomas Goirand (zigo)
