Build Woes

25 March 2013

I thought I'd back up after the delegated-builds post and expand on the nature of the build engineering problem that I've been dealing with (at my day job) on a documentation related problem.

The solutions are often not much better than the problem:

There aren't a lot of solutions and most of them seem to come down to "deal with it and build less," which is hardly a solution.

This is the foundation of the delegated-builds script that I wrote, which addresses the problem by making it less intrusive. I'm also working on a brief FAQ, which might help address some of the big questions about this project.
