[DISCUSS] Default test suite is too dang slow #1136
Buck Evan <buk...@...>
I'm cross-posting this from my github issue, as advised by pluradj.
There's two separate documents that tell newcomers how to build and test the source code:
This strongly implies that by default the tests should take less than an hour, or at least that was true at time of writing. I'm only able to run a fraction of the (non-comprehensive) test suite in three hours.
As a potential contributor, I always want to see the test suite passing before I make any change, so I can make a change, run the tests, and be sure (or at least reasonably confident) that any errors are due to me. The above behavior presents a large barrier for me though. For more context, see #1086 and #1134.
My naive suggested implementation:
If you (plural) will explain to me what you actually want to do about this, I'll work on contributing it.

Buck, this is a community project. It is open for new ideas and contributions.
I haven't worked on the build optimizations previously, so I don't have a strong opinion on what needs to be done here, but your ideas sound reasonable to me. I think it would be fine for you to move forward and see if those ideas can fly. Open up a pull request when you have something, then we can review and iterate.
