Description

8 years ago
there are 3 scripts which compose an update:

update-src.pl = updates the files from remote repositories

update-search.pl = updates the glimpse index using the current local files
update-xref.pl = updates the identifier index using the current local files

the code today in update-full-onetree seems to race these three tasks.

only the last two tasks are safely parallelizable.

update-full-onetree is not a script I wrote, i believe someone from mozilla.com wrote it.

sorry, i'm not awake. it's just subshelling, not forking concurrent things.
