Given that the buildbots still haven't recovered (windows
was just dropped from the nearly empty daily summaries - not
seen in 7 days..), any patches applied recently run the risk of
breaking builds on other platforms. According to
successful builds have been rare recently.
Until that stabilizes again, perhaps you should count yourself
lucky that your builds get to the tests? As I sent earlier, my
windows head build simply fails (when updating my repo every
other month or so, I usually have to wait for a window of
opportunity for the windows build, but this time, the effect
isn't that platform specific).
I assumed the buildbot issues were related to the move,
and that buildsystem fixes would start when the buildbots
were back. Are there any estimates as to when the buildbot
situation will get back to normal, so that build breaks and
validate issues will be more immediately visible again?
