> Change focus of build from projects to Build Definitions

>                 Key: CONTINUUM-564
>                 URL:
>             Project: Continuum
>          Issue Type: Wish
>          Components: Core system
>    Affects Versions: 1.0.2
>            Reporter: Geoff Gibbs
>             Fix For: 1.x
> Rather than using projects as the mian focus for continumms build system, why not use
the build definitions?
> For example:
> Currently If I have a project with 3 build definitions, each scehduled to run nightly
at 1,2 and 3am then the first will be triggered at 1am, the Project will be in a "Building"
state and the cvs update will take place, assuming changes have been made the required build
is then run.
> Assume a change is made before 2am.
> At 2am the second build definition is triggered and agian the Project will be in a "Building"
state, if I were to view the "Show projects" page now, I would not know if the first build
was taking over an hour or if the second build is taking place as the focus is on the project,
not the build definition.
> Finally at 3am the next build is trigger, but nothing has changed, so the third build
definition is never built.
> It seems more sensible for the Show Projects page to be replaced with a show build definitions
page and for the build definitions to be named (currently I have to examine the output to
see which build definition was used for a given build of a project.
