Subject Re: Continuum queuing jobs but not performing builds
Date Fri, 05 Sep 2008 10:29:42 GMT
I certainly haven't seen something like this - perhaps something in the
project change caused an infinite loop that might be a bug in the Maven
project handling.
Are you able to get a thread dump from Continuum when it occurs?
