Status: Closed (View Workflow)
If there is problem with SCM polling hanging (as in
JENKINS-4461) and you try to manually start a job, Hudson will duly schedule it on an executor and then seem to run it. When you look at the console, it says e.g.
Started by user jglick
Building remotely on someslave
and then nothing else happens - indefinitely. This is not friendly.
If the build has to wait to acquire a workspace lock, it should say so... and give you information about how to kill any outstanding polling process (JENKINS-4479).
