Subject Builds that have been failing for a while
Date Sat, 18 Sep 2010 23:49:39 GMT
Hi All,

There seems to be a fair few builds that fail alot and nothing is being done
by the projects to fix them.
Hudson is supposed to be here to help you guys test for failures and you fix
them, that's the point.

https://hudson.apache.org/hudson/job/HBase-TRUNK/ as an example has been
failing constantly for 21 days - 
not picking on HBase specifically here and I haven't looked into the cause,
but really, junit tests failing
for over 3 weeks , it should be fixed by now. (So I have disabled it until
someone from the project looks at it)

If there are many projects like this using up resources that more attentive
projects could otherwise be using
then I think they should be removed after ONE WEEK of failing at the VERY
LATEST.

Please, projects, be attentive to your builds.

If you need help then please ASK, but know that as always the Hudson admins
are volunteers, so provide whatever info
you feel will be helpful. It is in the Hudson Admins interests and
ALLcprojects interests to clean up your builds
and ensure they are fixed so that they 'usually' pass rather than usually
fail., this will help in the smoother
operations of our Hudson systems.

Thanks.

Gav...
