[geeklog-devel] FYI: Known Mercurial/Jenkins problem on project.geeklog.net

Just an FYI:

1) Our Jenkins was down since the recent security update of the server. There’s no automated restart of it (yet), and I forgot to start it manually. Will look into this ASAP.

2) Even before that, I noticed that there’s a problem with the automated checkouts that the Jenkins jobs are doing. The checkout (hg pull, etc.) seems to go through, but then Mercurial returns an error code, which aborts the job. This also happens when doing the same steps from the command line.

My guess is that the current version of the Mercurial plugin for Jenkins is no longer compatible with the rather old Mercurial version that’s running on the server. I’ve asked pair.com support to upgrade it and will check if that fixes the problem.

Until then, all the Jenkins jobs may report errors and probably won’t work. The Mercurial repository itself is not affected.

I’ll keep you posted on the progress.
