Maybe the list of build tools should be sorted per programming language. Also, the make-like programs may be placed together. --Philippe 09:04, 12 October 2006 (UTC)

Editing the Build Automation article[edit]

I would like to include a table with the following categories: Platform (Operating Systems, Languages), and Description Language (e.g., XML for Ant).

Best Practices? What is that doing here?[edit]

This section seems to be an unrelated list of software bromides. What's going on here? Mistercupcake (talk) 07:28, 13 December 2007 (UTC)

  • This article is written in enterprise-ese and is thus unencyclopedic. It should be rewritten. - Sikon (talk) 12:36, 14 January 2008 (UTC)

The Makefiles section needs to be removed. It is uninformitive and incorrect (Ant has nothing to do with makefiles). There can be a mention of tools to aid build automation at the end. Seanblanton (talk) 19:56, 4 November 2008 (UTC)

An aspect of SCM[edit]

An important point that is overlooked by the article is that build automation records how to build multiple variations from the same source files. This is a very important aspect of SCM (software configuration management). 124.149.187.254 (talk)

Advantages and Disadvantages[edit]

Disadvantages should be listed too, also questins, why do we need something like build tools can guide us to a interesting question. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 188.97.9.127 (talk) 20:14, 6 March 2013 (UTC)
