Go Builder is a continuous build client for the Go project. It integrates with the Go Dashboard AppEngine application.
Go Builder is intended to run continuously as a background process.
It periodically pulls updates from the Go Mercurial repository.
When a newer revision is found, Go Builder creates a clone of the repository, runs all.bash, and reports build success or failure to the Go Dashboard.
For a release revision (a change description that matches "release.YYYY-MM-DD"), Go Builder will create a tar.gz archive of the GOROOT and deliver it to the Go Google Code project's downloads section.
gobuilder goos-goarch... Several goos-goarch combinations can be provided, and the builder will build them in serial.
-dashboard="godashboard.appspot.com": Go Dashboard Host The location of the Go Dashboard application to which Go Builder will report its results. -release: Build and deliver binary release archive -rev=N: Build revision N and exit -cmd="./all.bash": Build command (specify absolute or relative to go/src) -v: Verbose logging -external: External package builder mode (will not report Go build state to dashboard or issue releases)
The key file should be located at $HOME/.gobuildkey or, for a builder-specific key, $HOME/.gobuildkey-$BUILDER (eg, $HOME/.gobuildkey-linux-amd64).
The build key file is a text file of the format:
godashboard-key googlecode-username googlecode-password
If the Google Code credentials are not provided the archival step will be skipped.
