We are using repo2docker to build “JupyterHub ready” docker images. Our environment.yml is rather long, but not extremely complex (very few pins).
More often than not, we hit the 10 mins stalled limit on the now infamous
Solving environment: ...working... conda step. (sometimes just trying again would eventually work, but recently we haven’t been able to build at all because of that).
Does someone know if there is a way to let conda spawn “something” while solving stuff so that travis does not think it has gone idle?
[EDIT] the travis_wait directive seems to help. Keeping the post open still, in case someone has the same issue.
(or, even better but probably only a dream: how to make conda faster in our rather complex env?)
