<mark_weaver>I've been manually restarting hundreds of MIPS builds, and most of them are now succeeding.
<mark_weaver>we have some notable regressions on MIPS recently though. texlive-2014 fails on MIPS due to a problem with luajit, and git no longer builds because it depends somehow on swig, and swig now depends on boost for tests, and boost fails on MIPS.
<Steap>mark_weaver: maybe we could disable the swig tests on MIPS64 ?
<mark_weaver>that's one option, although probably I should try to get boost working.
<mark_weaver>and luajit too, though I cringe at the prospect of learning enough about luajit to debug it :-(
<mark_weaver>well, I suppose luajit is a great piece of engineering, even if not of language design.
<civodul>yes, he's doing quite some work on TeX Live, i think
<mark_weaver>the funny thing is, luajit builds on MIPS, and it's the same version that's bundled with texlive-2014. but luajit itself comes with no tests, whereas texlive-2014 added a few tests that fail on MIPS.
<mark_weaver>I think we should consider adding a 'system?' field to user-groups, so that they can be given gid's from a lower range of numbers. I like to reserve the gid range 1000- for single-user groups.
