There are concerns for Jenkins + incremental builds: 1) Build repeatability This is especially important for testing -- be it UT, IT, or CSIT. 2) Jenkins slave state persistence. For an incremental build you need to have a baseline against which you are building, which feels like the state of the last successful merge job workspace is the seed. We obviously need to completely capture and properly replicate that state across multiple slaves (e.g. multiple concurrent verify jobs). We also need to deal with snapshot version updates -- i.e. the incremental build needs to refresh all upstream snapshot versions. Regards, Robert
