An insightful look into the development process of the Chromium browser, the open-source project that Google’s Chrome browser is built upon.
“To help developers avoid breaking the tree, we have try bots, which are a way to test a change under all tests and configurations before landing it. The results are emailed to the developer. We also have a commit queue, which is a way to try a change and have it landed automatically if the try succeeds. I like to use this after a long night of hacking. I press the button, go to bed, and wake up — hopefully to my change having landed.”
