Of course, they would be useful for people to log on to and debug system specific problems, but in order to screen for problems in the first place I think, we would need to develop scripts which would run automatically/periodically to ....

1. retrieve the latest CVS code.
2. build it and run tests on it in various configurations.
3. in the event of a success, log it somewhere so that our website can display status. 4. in the event of a failure of a build or a test failure in any configuration, wait a while and try CVS again 5. after some period in which failures are consistent, email out alerts.

Actually, I already have a script set up to do 1-3 (logs either success or failure - then it's up to the developers to sees what is wrong).

The logs get posted daily to address@hidden

While I'm at it, I'll reiterate my call for anyone who has a machine with a few spare cycles to help test GNUstep by running this script. You need a CVS checkout and the script in CVS:


Instuctions included.

You don't need root permission to run the script and you don't need to tell me - it just works!
