How often are the Nightly built?

Post by justinhow »

This is just a polite question - I am not trying to complain or hassle anyone!
How often are the overnights typically built/compiled (if that is the term - the download exe/zips created)?
Is it fairly random or every 2 weeks or...
Just noticed that they currently seem to be dated the 30th Jan 2021 (e.g HandBrakeCLI-20210130204849-e78f1d70e-master-win-x86_64.zip) and wondered when a new build was likely to be run.
Thanks in advance.

Nightly, when the build system is working.

Was nightly. They are no longer nightly. The nightly build platform was shutdown a while ago.

Back to snapshots again which are mostly random but usually 2~3 weeks unless something bigger happens. When GitHub fixes a few API problems, we'll hopefully go back to nightly again in the future.

Not quite weekly no.

Development is pretty slow these days so it's somewhat irrelevant anyway.

Should have added the sarcasm tag, sorry 😃
