Jenkins: Build-testing for every single commit

As of yesterday, I’ve drastically increased the number of testing machines in Jenkins (from two to 21!). This enables me to poll for changes in git every five minutes and automatically start a testing run for every single commit – regardless of it entering via Gerrit or not. (Note: This is in addition to the Gerrit trigger I’ve been using from day one on, not replacing it.)

Here’s an example from today:

Apart from looking at Jenkins directly, you can join the #exherbo-bots channel where the jenkins-exherbo bot announces all test results. Here’s an example for that:

[03.01.2014 13:42:59] <irker657> Exherbo: pipping arbor:master * 76ec9309669d / packages/sys-apps/grep/grep-2.15.exheres-0 packages/sys-apps/grep/grep-2.16.exheres-0: grep: Bump to 2.16
[03.01.2014 13:46:50] <jenkins-exherbo> Project arbor build #67:SUCCESS in 1 min 5 sec:

I hope you’ll find this useful and will actually look at the results since it will find out if you missed a dependency. And it potentially shows you automagic dependencies.
