Broken builds

2007-02-02

    Nightly builds are almost useless if there is no collective responsibility to keep the code in a buildable state.

    Why should I even bother to make sure my code builds before checking in, when the build has been broken for a week and no one, who can/should do anything about it, cares?

    Is it the responsibility of the ones who do care to be a PITA, or should we take it upon our selfs to fix all error just because we care?
