If you mean recovery while making packages such that the process goes to
the next available package to build, I've got a simple script that does
this. I kick off the script to try and build all the packages. It keeps
a log so it can be restarted in the event of a power failure or system
crash. If updates are made to the packages system it can be re-run and
tries to rebuild only those packages that were affected by the updates.
If anyone wants a copy of this script I'd be happy to pass it on.
