For a couple of weeks now I've seen that any attempt to build Firefox, even incremental builds seem to rebuild an awful lot of rust code. I found this in the source which seems to suggest why: https://searchfox.org/mozilla-central/source/config/makefiles/rust.mk#238. But, this means that now an incremental build with a couple of code change that have no impact on rust is taking upwards of 4 minutes to complete in comparison to around 40 seconds, and the log file is full of cargo output. I've heard similar comments from other developers.
This is a pretty big increase in the time to compile and test and is really slowing down my work. Is there any way we can avoid this? _______________________________________________ dev-platform mailing list email@example.com https://lists.mozilla.org/listinfo/dev-platform
