windows 1809 msys issues
We recently switched to a 1809 windows runner over the 1607 and rebuilt the containers. Looks like the behavior of the msys2 job regressed heavily with it. I'd say a first good step would be to update the msys binary we are using and see what issues still persist.
- Msys2 job doesn't utilize all the cores of the runner, dragging over the time needed to complete the build
- Meson configure phase takes multiple minutes now, ~10min is the usual time
Msys packages install had to be moved out of the docker image cause for some reason
docker buildwould hang endlessly then
Try installing msys (and rest of things) with
chocoin the docker image
