Jaunty Jackalope (Ubuntu 9.04) went End-Of-Life on Saturday.
Looking back through my build logs, it seems my desktop did 223 builds, spending 19 hours, 18 minutes, and 23 seconds doing builds during the development cycle of Jaunty. Once released, it performed an additional 99 builds, taking 18 hours, 3 minutes, and 37 seconds for security updates. As before, these times obviously don’t include patch hunting/development, failed builds, testing, stuff done on my laptop or the porting machines, etc.
Combined devel/security build standings per current release:
Looking at the build histories, Gutsy and Jaunty had about the same amount of builds (around 19 hours) during development, but Intrepid was a whopping 70 hours. This was related to all the default compiler flag testing there. I rebuilt the entire “main” component multiple times that release. Jaunty was a nice return to normalcy.
