@Martin_Guenther I am sorry if I gave that impression. I highly appreciate the ideas and the will to make the infrastructure better. I just noticed that the existing ticket https://github.com/ros-infrastructure/ros_buildfarm/issues/119 was actually created based on your feedback in the mailing list over a year ago :wink:

The rate in which even common operations fail when considering the scale of the ROS buildfarm is certainly a problem. We try to workaround those in many places. But there is certainly room for improvement to get closer to no false positives.

I think the main "problem" at the moment is that we don't have a clear idea how to "catch" any of the remaining false positives. Looking at some of those it is relatively easy for a human to decide if it is a real error or a false positive. Sometimes the same failure can be a false positive, sometime it is not :worried: If we can come up with a proposal how to distinguish even only some of the false positives reliably I would be more than happy to work on a patch.
