Ticket #932 (closed defect: fixed)
Unexplained, unlinked references in doc
|Reported by:||dabrahams||Owned by:|
http://buildbot.net/buildbot/docs/current/Scheduling-Builds.html uses a number of terms that are neither defined by that point in the document nor linked to any kind of explanation.
You could have a “quick” scheduler which used a 30 second timeout, and feeds a single “quick” Builder that uses a VC mode='update' setting.
A separate “full” scheduler would run more comprehensive tests a little while later, to catch more subtle problems. This scheduler would have a longer tree-stable-timer, maybe 30 minutes, and would feed multiple Builders (with a mode= of 'copy', 'clobber', or 'export').
The tree-stable-timer and fileIsImportant decisions are made by the Scheduler.
I think I've guessed what these things are, but it took some mental gymnastics that you could have spared me by introducing the ideas more carefully.
