BUILDBOT: configure phase not handled well
|Reported by:||fingolfin||Owned by:||dhewg|
Looking at our buildbot, every build has at least two phases: A "configure" and a "build" phase. However, the "configure" phase apparently does nothing right now, even though IMO it should: I would expect that if the "configure" script is modified, then our buildbot would re-run it, with the currently active set of parameters, during the configure phase.
What happens instead is that nothing is done in the configure phase (always), and our build system takes care of re-running configure; see <http://buildbot.scummvm.org/buildbot/builders/trunk-lenny/builds/3924>.
This is bad for at least two reasons:
1) It's confusing that if one is looking for configure re-runs, then this information is *not* on the "configure phase" page
2) If we want to make changes to the configure params passed by buildbot to configure, there is currently no good way to get buildbot to do that.
We should look into fixing this up
