I have a question regarding bulk-builds:
I had started a bulk-build on Friday afternoon, and over the weekend I
noticed at least three or four times that the build appeared to be hung.
When checking the processes, it turned out that it was hung trying to
download a distfile. Removing the file and killing the ftp-process
allowed the bulk-build to continue.
Any idea why the connection didn't time out, allowing the bulk-build to
Also, after it finally finished, I get a mail saying that no problems
were encountered, no packages are broken and all packages are built and
packaged. While I would like to believe that, I don't think that's the
case. Or is pkgsrc on i386 actually _that_ good? ;-)
Time is an illusion, lunchtime doubly so.
