Recurring issue of build
I have a really strong will to contribute to Redox. Pretty much every weekend, whenever I have "2 to 4 hours" I plan to contribute to relibc. And I always start the same: "let's do a clean checkout".
And 9/10 times it fails. Today "cookbook" submodule fetch failed. Usually it's "make all" that fails. Re-running produces the image, but you know, who wants to engage in debugging if something fails on the level of "howto".
I believe that figuring out if "basic build instructions still work" should be done in automated way, and just watched for.
At the end of the day I will look back and say "how many contributions I made per hour of work". And in Redox I just expect it to be zero, because I will exhaust all my energy on figuring out "how to build this part in a reproducible way".
It's really nigh impossible to remain a motivated contributor hitting wall every 10 meters.
Kind Regards NJ
