Good thinking! The chroot idea is a good one because the process lends itself to parallelism. That is, you might have one test box/chroot for, (maybe in order of importance) - unstable empty tree (all deps every time) - stable empty tree builds (same) - unstable cumulative tree builds - stable cumulative tree builds I see the last ones as being fairly important, because the cumulative (emerge -Du) trees will have the best throughput, for quicky finding any glaring, slap-forehead kind of bugs/bad keywords (i.e. low fruit). The cumulative tree machines would also be an efficient choice for your reverse-dependency idea (perhaps to only one level of indirection). -f -- gentoo-osx@g.o mailing list
