Re: Quality Assurance Tinderbox (build packages on commit and report failures)

IMHO it much easier to run partial bulk builds on changed packages
daily, not per commit. This is how AFAIK ALTLinux works.  They collect
updated .spec-s for a day and then run partial bulk build (in terms of
pkgsrc) sending results to maintainers by e-mail.

distbb can work even over internet. It is resistant for network failures.
And there are no limit on a number of build hosts.
pbulk can build several packages in parallel too.
