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
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?
- 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
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). 126.96.36.199 (talk)
Advantages and Disadvantages
Disadvantages should be listed too, also questions, why do we need something like build tools can guide us to a interesting question. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 188.8.131.52 (talk) 20:14, 6 March 2013 (UTC)
This page lacked appropriate and valid citations. Content was outdated; It lacked changes that the software industry has experienced. I took out self-promotions and added updated content that is accurate and has reliable sources. Kharnagy (talk) 18:23, 16 September 2015 (UTC)
