I have some scripts that work as a wrapper around the bulk builds I do;
this may be more than you need, but I'd like to see if they make sense to
someone who is not me:


The two caveats for you:

- Bulk builds take a week on decent hardware; you're building over 10,000
packages, after all.  The limited_list option in the pbulk config can let
you limit it to certain packages, which you may want to do.

- If you're doing this on Hammer, keep an eye on disk usage.  It generates
a huge amount of disk activity if you build everything, and Hammer will
happily keep track of all those changes.  I've filled terabyte disks
unintentionally by performing multiple builds.
