This is quite ugly.  I don't think this knowledge should be in


I think in fact that the right answer is probably to have
ts-build-check be more general somehow.

I have looked through the history of ts-{,xen-}build-check and I think
the current approach is a historical accident.  In the beginning it
was a wrapper around ts-xen-install which used a special check flag;
then that gradually generalised to what we have now - but it still
retains the same origins.

I was going to suggest checking the job status, but might be an
inconvenience during by-hand testing.

I considered having sg-run-job specify the parts it's going to use, as
command line arguments, with plumbing in sg-run-job from the recipe,
but that's still going to have to be buildjob-runvar-specific.

I considered controlling this via runvars from make-flight:
But it's also quite ugly.

I have a radical suggestion:

Suppose we have ts-freebsd-build set
and have it put the files in there with fixed, known, names
or something ?

Is there a reason why that wouldn't work ?

The stashing process would have to take care to set the runvar only
after it had created all the files.

How about using Osstest::BuildSupport::buildcmd_stamped_logged ?

target_cmd_root does not imply set -e; only target_cmd_build does.

You may want to invent buildcmd_stamped_logged_root or something.

Is this wise ?  We may at some point have hosts which have two network
interfaces connected (perhaps to the test network, or to each other,
or something) in which case this is probably wrong.

There are a lot of \.  I wonder if you might find
<<'ENDQ'.<<END.<<'ENDQ' a useful construct.
