For a second I thought I had messed up, even though I did a full build, install and atf run before committing, and then updated and another build... While I agree on the theoretical problems about CVS and atomicity, most 10-minute intervals have no commits. So an algorithm: redo: start_time=gettimeofday() do update latest_time=`find latest time in checkout` if (latest_time + 30s >= start_time) goto red that should avoid getting part of what is logically an atomic commit. An alternative is to ignore this problem and only address it if the false alarm rate is over 10%. I realize we are perhaps 1 for 1, and that may be partly because people are trying harder to avoid triggering the automatic reports.
