I think most problems comes from doing
cvs update
and then you get old .elc files left behind or you need to do
make bootstrap

A make that removed old .elc files and did bootstrap when needed is the ideal solution. The second part is probably very hard.

Hi, Emacs,

I've just cvs updated, and the build breaks with:

org/org-ascii.el:29:1:Error: Symbol's function definition is void: org-float-time

Could the person who's responsible please fix this.

Here we go again. The endless tread mill of the broken build. It feels like being spat at. Sorry to be so "unhelpful", but I've got no desire
or energy to keep debugging broken builds, or to keep "try make
bootstrap"ing. I'm going through a very bad patch in my personal life, and I just don't have the energy any more, and I'm not prepared to do it.

"cvs update" followed by "make" MUST WORK NEARLY ALL THE TIME.
Alternatively "bzr update", "make" working nearly all the time would be

This is a serious process bug we have, we've had for years, and we MUST
fix.  If it's not fixed soon, I'm just going to give up on Emacs
maintenance and bid the project goodbye.  The pain level is too high.

I've been interested in setting up an automatic build test environment
for Emacs for some time. It would basically checkout the emacs sources
on every checkin, build the sources and report the build
quality(probably with some existing continuous integration software).

I would also store a TB or something of past builds.

Would that be of any help to you?

Sorry, and all that.
