Hi Илья, I think that Travis’ Homebrew plugin is just fine, but I would definitely avoid updating/upgrading Homebrew as that’s certainly going to make builds much slower.
Do you have any sample logs of the situation where socat failed to install with non-updated Homebrew? It doesn’t make sense that socat has been failing to install, as there are binary downloads available for almost every OSX and even more so, Formula/socat.rb is being changed really infrequently (once per year at most, according to git history for socat.rb). > On 9 Jul 2020, at 10:07, Илья Шипицин <chipits...@gmail.com> wrote: > > we have homebrew --> update --> true > > https://github.com/haproxy/haproxy/blob/master/.travis.yml#L26 > <https://github.com/haproxy/haproxy/blob/master/.travis.yml#L26> > > > if we remove it, brew will not get updated. > > > most of the time it is not an issue and we can install socat. but under some > circumstances socat refuses to install without brew update > > чт, 9 июл. 2020 г. в 12:42, Dinko Korunic <dinko.koru...@gmail.com > <mailto:dinko.koru...@gmail.com>>: > I would suggest using HOMEBREW_NO_AUTO_UPDATE environment variable to avoid > Brew auto-updating where it’s not really needed, for instance as in: > > HOMEBREW_NO_AUTO_UPDATE=1 brew install socat > > If that doesn’t work (but I think it should), pinning will cause none of > dependancies to be installed automatically and only through manual install: > > brew list | xargs brew pin > brew install socat > > >> On 9 Jul 2020, at 09:19, Илья Шипицин <chipits...@gmail.com >> <mailto:chipits...@gmail.com>> wrote: >> >> We install socat, because it is (or was?) needed for some tests.
