Re: [AMBER-Developers] EMIL breaks everything???

Hi all,

The easiest way to get a branch tracked by cruise control is to send me an
email with the branch name-- I have some scripts that can add the build
targets almost immediately.

Cruise control has not been able to build and test the latest commits
because a 'git pull' is failing due to local changes being made to the
following files:


It looks like the files are automatically generated by automake during the
build and therefore probably should not be committed into the tree as their
contents can vary depending on the automake version and installation
directory. Cruise control has automake 1.11.1, which is up to date with the
Red Hat repositories.

I am checking out those files again for each build and will have it
automatically check out a clean version of the git tree at the start of
each build from now on so this problem doesn't happen again.
