Description Zoltan Herczeg 2010-06-22 13:43:57 PDT
In this bug, the ews bot incorrectly reports an error, which is not happen for clean builds:

Probably the incremental build fails. Can we force a clean build on patches?

Evan please help.
Comment 2 Evan Martin 2010-06-25 10:30:52 PDT
EWS masters, can we do clean builds on the EWS?
Comment 3 Dimitri Glazkov (Google) 2010-06-25 10:42:22 PDT
Will clean up in a sec. #webkit is also a good venue for this.
Comment 4 Adam Barth 2010-06-25 10:44:38 PDT
The problem is that build-webkit --chromium doesn't understand how to deal with changes to WebCore/WebCore.gypi.

Apologies, I don't know how to read. As punishment, adding myself to Skipped tests lists.

This patch do miracles! Excellent work guys :)
Comment 11 Tony Chang 2010-07-19 10:53:12 PDT
This patch is kind of annoying.  Every time I run build-webkit --chromium, gclient runs.  Is it not possible to modify just the ews bot step instead of modifying build-webkit?

The other option is to make a build-webkit --chromium --force, and have --force trigger gclient.

Also, on this slows down the waterfall bots because now we run gclient twice (once during the update chromium dependencies step and once during the compile step).

Maybe the solution is better dependency checking?  Other ports pick up changes to their build system when you run build-webkit.
