So I’m getting ready to do my very first checkin. It’s a nice trivial change to some of the debug-only dumping routines. I kicked off the checkin tests and asked how long they would take. Now some other bigger checkins have been going through ‘Extended Testing’ and they were talking how many days it took to test. Back on the C# compiler checkin tests took a little less than 30 minutes. I was hoping for somethign in the 30-60 minutes range. Nope, none of that. 4-6 hours depending on the machine and which flavors you built.
Well I guess they think it’s time for me to me to hit the ground running: I’ve got bugs to fix. Real bugs!
