Backchannel #buildfaster on


  • Discussion of fallout of eliminating PGO builds. It seems some are not 100% happy with this change, though maybe it's possible to remediate this somehow?
  • It looks like eliminating PGO builds has reduced our end to end times, but we're still falling short of our magic number of 2 hours. Suggestions on what to do?
  • Review the Action Items & Bugs

Action items from last time

  • ctalbert to poke I.T. about getting new, faster machines (i.e. not mac minis) to run win/linux tests.

Review [buildfaster:p1] bugs

Review current activities

Review [buildfaster:?] bugs


Actions for next time

  • ted to find or file bug on triggering PGO builds manually
  • wlach to find better metric for measuring test times that are holding us back (average test times are seriously misleading: we can improve on that metric substantially without getting closer to our goal)
  • ted to find someone to work on building universal binaries for macos x in a single pass
  • khuey to land pymake patch, catlee to perform further testing of pymake
