When I did experimental bulk builds, I did observe problems with
stalling FTP, so I added the following line to /usr/pkg/etc/mk.conf
(this is actually part of the bootstrap kit):
:I'll update pkgbox tomorrow after the branch, and start a pbulk build.
:It tends to take a long time to make it through a bulk build (I started
:one of pkgsrc-current last week, and it's on package 5315 of 7721 right
:now) so we may not have packages the day of release... We'll find out.
What are we doing wrong that is causing it to take such a long
time? I've noticed when I've tried to do it that sometimes the bulk
build gets stuck on ftp. It can come to a complete halt and stay that
way for hours on end :-(
From the ftp(1) man page:
Quit if the connection has stalled for quittime seconds.
This can't speed up the build, however it can prevent it from stalling.
For 2.0 we really need to have working packages on release day.
