WIP: Trying to demonstrate a test setup bug. #49538

wants to merge 1 commit into
base: devel


None yet

aknrdureegaesr commented Dec 5, 2018


My pull request #48416 keeps earning test failures that I'm doubtful it has rightfully earned. Therefore, I desire to test the sanity of the ansible tests. This "pull request" does that.

So this contains a comment-only commit on top of a recent commit from the devel-branch. If the devel branch is sane and the build environment is sane, this should pass the checks. If there is a problem in the checks or in the present devel branch, this "pull request" will expose the problem.

Later addition: It did expose a problem, see #49541.

If the build is currently flaky, this test might pass. If the build is smart to only run certain tests, depending on the change proposed, I'll need to refine. We'll see.

"If a computer tries to be smart, you occasionally need to do weird stuff." D. Knuth writes something to this effect (regarding his very own TeX).

This phoney PR has served its purpose and is no longer needed.

In a personal remark: I had envisioned to retrigger this again and triumphantly close this after the "no problems" verdict from the tests. But I have learned the hard way that other build problems are still in existence.

Good luck to the people who engage fixing those! Your doing a service to the entire community.
