Subject Re: Request for adding Clone Workspace Plugin
Date Fri, 15 Feb 2013 13:52:38 GMT
Thanks - I understand it's not clone per build. Also I set the
topmost upstream job on a node to fetch changes from repo using git
and clone the same workspace for all other downstream projects on the
same node.  This (I assume) prevents copies across master. But this is
convention which cannot be imposed for builds@. 

Am I right in assuming that copy of zip archive to master happens
regardless of all the clone related jobs being on the same node? This
is something I wasn't aware of. That seems bad.
