On a suggestion from kevin – I added a –recurse option to mockchain. It builds all the pkgs it can and records the failures. When it gets to the end of the stack it tries to build the failures again and keeps trying until either: everything succeeds or the set of failures is the same – twice in a row.
Works pretty well to build a giant pile of pkgs and walk away.
I also talked to clark about mockchain and mock and he’s going to pull it in as a script in mock itself once I get it ready.
Here’s the latest version of things:
Try it out and let me know what it needs.
