Some notes, as we consider how we will move forward with Embedded Samba.
Matthieu's changes to the build_test script reduced the run time by only two
hours. That, again, emphasizes the point that it's likely the code build
itself that is taking too long.
That said, I am, at this point, only using the build_test script to help get
a sense of the problems we face working in this environment. I believe that
Kai is right that we need to figure out how to improve all aspects of our
performance in the embedded space--I don't want to give this up. Andrew is
also correct that the build farm, as it is currently designed and working,
is not suited to including these kinds of devices. I also understand that
changing the workings of the build farm to accommodate embedded platforms is
not currently a reasonable suggestion.
The solution may be to set up a separate pool of embedded devices. I'm not
sure yet. I still have a lot to learn about the workings of the build farm.
Kai: What do you think about creating a separate Embedded Build Farm
environment? Would that be beneficial? I will contribute at least
the one Dockstar and possibly additional systems (I have a TI device
available too, though I have other plans for it).
ABartlet: Is this do-able? What resources would be required?
