I have troubles getting a merge request submitted. The story is:
- a full pipeline build takes many hours - let’s say 6+ with retries
- because I can’t immediately retry a failed build, the wall clock time is actually longer
- most of the time, by the time I can make all builds pass, the
masterbranch has moved on and I need to rebase, at which point a full pipeline needs to run again
So at this point I’m somewhat surprised how hard is to get a patch in, given the current setup. And how flaky some of the builds are, to be honest.
Am I doing something wrong? I assume that, without priviledges, one needs a full up-to-date branch which passes the required builds, and then the Marge bot will peform the merge. But that moment seems far away
