Crater changelog


#1

This topic contains the changelog of Crater, our tool to run experiments across parts of the Rust ecosystem. You can subscribe to it if you want to be notified when something changes.

Please avoid posting comments to this topic, to keep it clean. Thanks!


#2

Crater is now testing 23k new GitHub repositories, going from 21k tested projects to 44k! This will increase coverage, but also the execution time for Crater runs.

Pull request - GitHub repositories scraper


#3

Is there anywhere we can find the crater reports?


#4

There is not an UI for that, but you can see all the places where craterbot was invoked with a GitHub search query.

PS: let’s try keeping this thread only for the changelog! If you want to ask questions/leave feedback there is the Crater channel on Discord.


#5

Craterbot will now post a link to the queue and the experiment’s details when a new experiment is created! Thanks to xd009642 for implementing this feature!

#6

Network access is now disabled while building and testing crates, to prevent abuse from malicious crates (nothing ever happened yet, but better be safe than sorry). Thanks to AndrewSpeed for implementing this feature!

Pull request


#7

When you create multiple experiments on the same PR, Crater will now automatically generate names for all of them (like pr-123, pr-123-1, pr-123-2…). Thanks to @iox for implementing this feature!
