Nightly builds have been fixed


#1

Cargo had a very rough bug recently that’s been causing travis to fail for Rust projects:

But even after the fix landed, nightlies have been broken for a few days.

However,

https://travis-ci.org/steveklabnik/semver/jobs/180795227

It’s fixed! :confetti_ball:


#2

Hmm, my rustup update got rustc 1.15.0-nightly (908dba0c9 2016-12-01) with cargo 0.16.0-nightly (3568be9 2016-11-26). Wonder why I didn’t get 2016-12-02 like your travis build?


#3

When I look at cargo-dist, the newest builds are dated 2016-11-28 02:32, and it’s still that broken 3568be9.

But from the main dist, rust-nightly-x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu.tar.gz is dated 2016-11-29 20:19 yet contains the same cargo 0.16.0-nightly (built 2016-12-02) that you got in travis.

So, I guess this is in part a difference between how rustup.sh and rustup.rs perform the download, monolithic downloads versus componentized, and maybe there’s some CDN oddness here too?
