Subject CI Builds Need Only a Fraction of the Sub-Projects in the SCM Repo
Date Thu, 17 Apr 2008 17:44:32 GMT
Continuum is set to build a maven project aggregating several <module>
sub-projects. In reality, the directory containing this top-level
project contains *many* more sub-projects than it's pom.xml describes.

When continuum build runs, it checks out the entire tree beneath this
main project, including all of the sub-directories associated with the
sub-projects that aren't specified in the pom. The activity checks out
far too much from the SCM repository than is necessary for the CI build
itself [as defined by the pom hierarchy] and adds tens of minutes to the
overall CI build time.

Suggestions on how to better control the behavior of the SCM checkout
performed by the continuum build? Thanks.
