Hi, I am planning to enable daily head build logs of ports to current@. The idea is that only new regressions will generate 1 mail with a list of failures. This list will only include *new* failures. It will not nag every day if some port is still broken.
This will only work well if the ports tree used is stable and not causing the failures due to updates. We have a quarterly tree that is similar to a stable branch that we update less often. I will use this branch for the builds. I will not enable the actual mails until it has been tested to ensure it is not noisy and full of false-positives. This should help capture userland build regressions that are missed due to not exp-running changes in src. The caveat here is that the host kernel these builds are going on will remain on the normal monthly update cycle. This hopefully won't cause too many false-positives. I can always disable them temporarily or permanently should there be noise. It may be that this system will need to have its host auto updated daily as well. I'd rather not get into a constant brick-and-fix cycle though. -- Regards, Bryan Drewery on behalf of portmgr@
