For those of us that don't speak build-farm, how do I make this build not unstable?

Looking at the console output (, the only error I see is that it barfs when trying to send emails -- I'm guessing (the maintainer email) is no longer valid?

Thanks. I think this is what I'm looking for, although I have yet to check to see if this removes the unstable flag.

Looks like it's not complaining about hersh, it's complaining about "a catkin package".

The line "Notification recipients: hersh@wDocumenting a catkin package" will extend the list of recipients and that might break the email notification plugin. The problem here seems to be that the output is mixed up (like stdout and stderr). I am pretty sure I filled a ticket about that some time ago but can't find it.

I'd suggest running rosdoc_lite on your latest source in a catkin workspace.

See if that works, and what it says.

EDIT: to better duplicate the build farm doc environment, use a clean workspace that has not yet been built.

On that page there is a link called "Test Result". If you click on it you'll see that 1/1 tests failed. If you fixup that test it will likely be stable again. You can also get an unstable label if some warnings are detected, though I'm not sure how strict it is.


Well this is a doc job, so there is likely something else going on here (but the above still explains how/why a job is considered "unstable").
