Subject Re: build scheduling issues

I think you want global ordering. Grouping should just be a display/ 
management technique, not anything that changes how projects are  

However, this needs to be reviewed as a whole (which I think Emmanuel  
is doing), such that builds can be triggered when their dependencies  
change which will help with the ordering as it won't be dependant on  
them all being triggered at the same time?
