Tidy home, tidy Build Service

April 6th, 2013 by

Anyone using the Open Build Service in the last couple of weeks will notice how hopelessly overloaded it is.  I blame the ARM lads ;).  But there is something that we should all do as responsible community members: delete or disable your old stuff.

I’ve just spent 15 minutes going through my Open Build Service home:wstephenson project, deleting unfinished works in progress, finished branches that were never deleted, inherited repositories in branched projects that aren’t relevant to the tweaks I’m making, and I think I’ve saved about 100 repositories for the OBS scheduler to recalculate and look at publishing.

Time for you to spring clean too?

    Hi Will,

    You are perfectly right. The whole OBS needs such a clean up due to unnecessary stuff in unmaintained repositories as well as redundancies in the system itself.

    I hope that all users with an OBS account will follow your example soon.

    Best regards
