Subject Re: not committing things that add HiveQA failures
Date Wed, 25 Nov 2015 21:24:21 GMT
Yea I thought that has always been the agreed policy, to wait until HiveQA
doesn't report unexpected failures before checking in, it should be
strictly followed.

For fixing test/build, I think traditionally its nicer to first check with
the author/committer of breaking patch if there is a simple fix, otherwise
if there is no response (within few hours), or if fix is non-trivial, to
revert.  But I dont feel that strongly either way, and can also see the
value of immediate reversion if its a blocking break.
