Subject Re: [discussion] Buildbot standard a.o or our own.
Date Tue, 01 Jan 2013 11:01:15 GMT
I did know that we use the machines for building:

http://ci.apache.org/projects/openoffice/

But it seemed to me we could integrate deeper using e.g. continum and
sonar, to get better monitoring and reporting. I might be wrong but do we
e.g.
- get automatic mail when a build fails ?
- have a statistic over our build through time ?

I could also see an enhancement where we run an analysis of which part of
the code changes most, compared to which part of the code has most reported
bugs. I am used to that type of reports because if gives a feeling of the
weak spots in the code.

I think the job being done today is great, and was in my own (obviously not
too elegant) way just trying to see if we could improve.

Jan I.
