Subject Re: Proposal for alteration of criteria for automatic patch verification
Date Thu, 14 Jan 2016 00:20:22 GMT
Agreed.  I'd vote for making sure that the broken daily test report be 
accompanied by a list of the changes that occurred since the last 
successful run - and that it be the responsibility of all folks with 
changes on that list to gang up and ensure that the problem is 
identified and resolved in a timely fashion.  We should probably spell 
out what that looks like, but it seems eminently reasonable....
