Red Clown-Nose Game

I love games, I really do. Just the other day, I found out I was in a game I didn't even know about. It's called the The Continuous Integration Game, and it's played on the Hudson instance on build.eclipse.org. And guess what, because I keep breaking the psychopath (XPath2) build, I'm placed almost at the bottom (that earns me -10 points), and dcarver who keeps fixing the build afterwards, is almost at the top (since a successful build gives +1 point and adding a test suite gives +1 per test. And who added the 8000+ tests from the W3C suite?)

I certainly have room for improvement - let the games begin!

And what do you think about some guys who breaks the build system just when you commit some minor modifications ?

thanks nick ;)

Well, anyone who takes on build engineering chores are heroes in my book!

It's a little incentive not to break the build. Public shame works wonders at times. :)
