As part of RelEng's Blogging Blitz, I'm going to write a bit about [build slave] pooling concepts, differentiating between the old Tinderbox model and the Buildbot pool-of-slaves model.
The topics covered will be:
- The tinderbox model on a single branch.
- The tinderbox model on multiple branches.
- The pooling model on multiple branches.
- Split pools.
- Some new approaches.
