Hi folks--

when i run "make" from my source tree, and it succeeds, i typically
expect that running "make" again will show that nothing needs to be
done.

but that's not the case.  Both the sphinx-based documentation and the
ruby notmuch.so are always rebuilt, i think due to some sort of
dependency loop.

But i don't really understand the dependencies there.  Maybe someone who
understands either ruby or sphinx better than i do can clean it up?
Having clean dependency tracking and quick rebuilds makes a project a
lot more fun to hack on.

Here's a trace of the rebuild process:

This is not our Makefile, but something generated by sphinx; it would
not be that hard to replace if the problem was there. Alas I think the
underlying problem seems to be that "sphinx-build -b texinfo" is
regenerating (or at least touching) all of the texi files. I suspect
that's a limitation of sphinx-builder texinfo output.

This Makefile is generated by "ruby extconf.rb --vendor". It includes a
dependency on itself, so it always fires after running "ruby
extconf.rb". It might be only running "ruby extconf.rb" if
bindings/ruby/Makefile does not exist would fix this particular
issue. That sounds more gnu make specific than ruby specific.

but it's not just texinfo, right?  it starts with the html build
itself.  can we at least diagnose why that's happening?

I'd be happy to test any proposed patches.  I don't really understand
this toolchain, or why anyone would build a makefile that rewrites
itself :/

Yes, although the html rebuild is much faster than the texinfo + info rebuilds.

I've posted some patches for the sphinx-doc issues a couple of hours ago
(id:20190421171245.19729-1-david@tethera.net). 

Currently the ruby rebuild doesn't seem to be slowing things down much
for me.

That's with an SSD, so maybe there's more of hit for other environments.

agreed, in the runs that i've been doing as well.  I was concerned that
the html rebuild itself may have been *triggering* the rebuild of the
texinfo stuff, though.  Sounds like you don't think that's the case.

thanks!  your own commentary on that series seems to acknowledge that
there are problems with it (though i don't understand the tradeoffs
well).  i'm not super comfortable with make-style "stamping": my
experience with it is that it creates a synchronization problem, and
it's easy for the "sync" between the stamp and the generated artifacts
to break, at which point the safest thing is to "make clean" and start
fully over.

Is there no way to give make itself full visibility into the specific
generated files so it can do its comparisons directly?  I'm obviously
not asking you to rewrite the entire native sphinx build system, i'm
just observing that at present it seems suboptimal, though i don't know
how to fix it either :/

I agree, this one isn't particularly slow, and it appears to be a leaf
dependency (for now), so it's not the worst thing.  But it's still
pretty clearly a bug that this thing loops.

There was a problem with the first patch, which I replaced with two more.

I'm open to ideas, but keep in mind we want to support parallel make,
which means we have to be careful not to trigger multiple invocations of
sphinx-build in parallel.

thanks.  i've reviewed and published my review on that series.  I think
it should probably be merged.

hm, i'm not entirely sure why sphinx-build can't be run in parallel, if
it could target the creation of specific files (but maybe it can't).

I do note that (independent of this series), if i run the following
loop:


     while make -j4 --trace; do
        python3 -c 'print("="*100)'
        touch doc/man1/notmuch-reply.rst
     done

then only every second run of make contains this info:

and the other times, it doesn't show up.  I'd expect this to be
idempotent, but i'm not sure why it does this.  it doesn't do it when
make is run with -j1.

It can target specific files according to the documentation, but the
main issue is that it caches a bunch of state under
doc/_build/doctrees. It doesn't do any kind of locking, so multiple
writers leads to build failures.

I've tagged the previous mail with notmuch::bug so that we can keep
track of it, but i don't think it's a high priority.

There are several places where the current Makefiles either have a
dependency on a phony target, or on a directory. Both of these lead to
constant rebuilds.

Stamp files are not the most elegant solution, but it seems to prevent
the rebuilds.

The directory is (neccesarily) not updated by the build, so it keeps
trying to build. The proposed fix is to use the name of the dynamic
library containing the extension.  This is a partial fix for the
rebuilding reported at [1].

Although the rebuild does not take long, it is a bit noisy, so assume
if it succeeds once, it doesn't need to re-invoke setup.py until the
shared library is rebuilt. This is a partial fix for [1].

I applied patches 2 and 3 to master. Patch 1 doesn't seem quite right,
and in retrospect needs patches 2 and 3, so I will repost a new version
after this.

Depending on a phony target seems like a good way to always trigger a
recipe.

In [1] Daniel observed that the gzipped man pages were only being
rebuild every second time when building with `make -j4'. This may be
caused by a race condition between sphinx-build rebuilding the roff
files and the recipe to gzip them. This commit sequentializes these
two steps by making the stamp file a prerequisite for (all of) the
gzip files.
