2019-12-19t/run.perl: to avoid repeated process spawning for *.t
Spawning a new Perl interpreter for every test case means Perl has to reparse and recompile every single file it needs, costing us performance and development time. Now that we've modified our code to avoid global state, we can preload everything we need. The new "check-run" test target is now 20-30% faster than the original "check" target.
2019-12-11tests: don't repeatly validate NEWS.atom
We can create a stamp to avoid rerunning the check unless NEWS.atom changes (and it will, soon, I hope :>).
2019-11-24.gitignore: ignore local prove(1) files
As described in prove(1), .prove is storage for --state=save and .proverc allows per-worktree customizations.
2019-11-15doc: check-man: save the result of successful runs
We can keep a stamp around if the corresponding manpage hasn't changed to avoid re-running man(1) and awk(1).
2019-10-07doc: generate NEWS, NEWS.atom, and NEWS.html
We'll use our Documentation/RelNotes directory and internal APIs to generate these files for website use (the website should be completely reproducible).
2016-09-07doc: new docs for user-level commands
Hopefully more folks can download and run public-inbox, nowadays.
2016-06-20MANIFEST: update with recent changes
And add a check-manifest target to the Makefile to ensure we're up-to-date with git (but do not depend on git).
2016-05-14build: support eatmydata in "make check" target by default
This should help poor developers who still use rotating disks on cheap netbooks.
2015-01-11.gitignore: relax MYMETA pattern
Newer systems may use .json instead of .yml
