Ticket #2040 (closed defect: fixed)
.buildbot-sourcedata sometimes contains unicode strings, causes full resync during builds
|Reported by:||dberger||Owned by:|
we don't have a perfect repro yet, but we noticed that some of our upgraded builders (0.7.11p3 -> 0.8.4p1) like to do full resyncs on force builds and after build failures. a newly created builder hasn't exhibited this problem.
we're using perforce.
after much tracking down, it looks like the common thread is that the misbehaving builders have u'/perforce/branch/path' in their buildbot-sourcedata file, rather than '/perforce/branch/path' - which suggests that argsbranch? is coming in unicode, and being written to the file that way.
If/as we learn more, I'll update the ticket.
- Keywords p4 added
