Subject Re: [build system] IMPORTANT UPDATE
Date Wed, 25 Nov 2020 21:35:46 GMT
hey all, work is going quite well and smoothly for this project.

today's update:

we will experience significant downtime monday/tuesday as we spin up the
new primary jenkins node.  until then, we'll be building over the next few
days so i'll have a chance to better track down and fix any system-level
build breaks.

but most importantly, i just added 3 of the 4 new ubuntu 20.04 workers to
the pool:  research-jenkins-worker-03, 04 and 06.  -05 is being difficult,
so i'm going to let it pout in the corner for a while before hitting it
again w/the ansible cannon.
