Subject Re: Ivy nightly builds - Generate a full .zip/.tar.gz snapshots?
Date Sat, 03 Jun 2017 01:39:31 GMT
Looked at the job logs. This indeed caught a genuine compilation error. Given that we don’t
run these tutorials build daily, it wasn’t noticed this far. It looks like this might have
been introduced by some of our recent changes. I’ll  take a look to fix it today.

Not sure if that is that the right.
I set up a job which runs @daily, starts "ant -f build-release.xml snapshot-bin" and publishes
