sage clone: do not rebuild the entire Sage library, and do not rebuild the docs

Description (last modified by )
With the attached patches, sage clone
 does no longer rebuild the reference manual,
 does no longer unnecessarily rebuild the whole Sage library (just because of a missing Cython version file).
In e.g. the sagecombinat
script, there are usually so many patches applied in the queue, it makes more sense to (re)build the manual after applying the patches, not before.
The unintended rebuild of all extension modules upon cloning is a bug introduced by #13031.
Apply trac_13245clonenodocbuild.patch and trac_13245clonecython.patch.

Here is a different patch; this one just turns off docbuilding in sageclone
altogether.
comment:3 followup: ↓ 4 Changed 7 years ago by
Ping.
Not directly related, but meanwhile sageclone
also regenerates all Cythongenerated files, because we don't copy .cython_version
, which is fixed by:

sageclone
diff git a/sageclone b/sageclone
a b 53 53 54 54 cpdir(os.path.abspath('sage/sage'), os.path.abspath(branch + '/sage')) 55 55 56 if os.path.isfile('sage/.cython_version'): 57 print "Copying over hidden Cython version file..." 58 os.link('sage/.cython_version', branch+'/.cython_version') 59 56 60 def copy_dtree(src_dir, dest_dir): 57 61 src_root = os.path.abspath(src_dir) 58 62 dest_root = os.path.abspath(dest_dir)
But there are other issues as well (e.g. rebuilding the fast_callable
interpreters, which IMHO isn't necessary either).

Oh, forgot: Cythongenerated header files (*.h
) don't contain a special comment on that on the first line (which is probably an upstream Cython bug), so the following currently doesn't work as expected either:
if ext in ['.h', '.c', '.cpp']: if 'Cython' in open(src + '/' + F).readline(): os.link(src + '/' + F, dest + '/' +F) os.utime(dest + '/' +F, None)
(For the moment, we could look for ^#ifndef __PYX_HAVE__sage__
in those, probably even without the sage__
.)

Okay, here is a patch to deal with the .h
files and .cython_version
. Rebuilding the fast_callable interpreters doesn't take too much time, so I'm not dealing with it right now. Leif, would you like to be listed as an author?

Yes, but it also triggers the rebuild of (currently) at least one other Cython module (besides the newly generated five sage.ext.interpreters.wrapper_*.pyx
):
... Building interpreters for fast_callable Updating Cython code.... Compiling sage/plot/plot3d/parametric_surface.pyx because it depends on ./sage/ext/interpreters/wrapper_rdf.pxd. ... building 'sage.plot.plot3d.parametric_surface' extension ...
(I think we could just copy over all files in sage/ext/interpreters/
, which is in .hgignore
.)
Note sure what or whether docrebuilding is triggered (upon next sage docbuild ...
) by rebuilding the interpreters though.
Could you explain why we "touch" almost all manually copied (more precisely, linked) files?
Leif, would you like to be listed as an author?
Does the patch introduce new environment variables? :P

Since apparently hg archive
(meanwhile?) doesn't preserve modification times either, we could use hg clone U
and some cp pPR
of hg manifest
magic instead (of plain hg clone
).

Yes, hopefully.
Anyway, the title (and parts of the description) still advertise an option to disable docbuilding, but the currently listed patch just disables it unconditionally. Which way do we want to go?
comment:13 Changed 7 years ago by
I think it makes more sense not to build the docs at all. But I don't use sage clone
myself, I only opened this in response to experiences of various sagecombinat users.
comment:14 Changed 7 years ago by
 Reviewers set to John Palmieri
 Summary changed from sage clone: give option to not rebuild the docs to sage clone: do not rebuild the entire Sage library, and do not rebuild the docs
I think that rebuilding the files in sage/ext/interpreters/
is because of code in devel/sage/setup.py
, and any changes to this should be on another ticket.
Meanwhile, the patch trac_13245clonecython.patch seems to fix the main cloning problem. I'm happy with that one.

comment:21 Changed 7 years ago by
I think that being in MANIFEST.in
is more relevant to what we ship than being in .hgignore
, since as far as I can tell, we're using Python's distutils to produce the Sage library spkg (by calling python setup.py sdist
in devel/sage/spkgdist
). I'll try deleting the file and running the full test suite...

Hmmm, did some testing, and it seems copying over any already built documentation doesn't make sense (or doesn't work as expected at least).
I've made sure that the documentation (and the Sage library) is uptodate, but if I run sage docbuild reference html
afterwards in a fresh clone, apparently everything (of the reference manual) gets rebuilt.
It says
[foo] building [html]: targets for N source files that are out of date [foo] updating environment: 0 added, N changed, 0 removed ...
for all components AFAICS.
(This is with 5.10.rc0.)

I think that it makes sense, but it doesn't work as expected. That is, if you clone the Sage library, you should still be able to find documentation in the usual place. The fact that it needs to be rebuilt is annoying (although less so, now that the docs don't take as long to rebuild), and a bug with Sphinx or mercurial or something we do, I'm not sure which. It's been an issue with cloning for years, and it's never been resolved satisfactorily.
I don't know if cloning is even going to be part of the new git workflow, whenever that arrives. In any case, I don't feel like spending any energy to try to fix this problem.

I think that it makes sense, but it doesn't work as expected.
I meant that we should either drop copying over any "prebuilt" documentation (since it doesn't work  there's apparently no difference to building all from scratch), or fix rebuilding [all of it].
Since we both seem to be unable to do (or don't want to spend time on) the latter, I think we should go with the former.
That is, if you clone the Sage library, you should still be able to find documentation in the usual place.
? I don't understand what you mean by that; $SAGE_ROOT/devel/sagemain/doc/output/...
at least is always there.
I don't know if cloning is even going to be part of the new git workflow, whenever that arrives.
I don't see why cloning should vanish with the switch to git.

Me neither.

Okay, but cloning will have to be rewritten to use git instead of mercurial. I don't know what affect that will have on modification times and other issues relating to rebuilding the documentation.
comment:30 Changed 7 years ago by
What's most annoying to me is that the whole documentation gets rebuilt (upon sage docbuild reference html
) when I switch back to the original branch (which is supposed to be left untouched).
(I can't believe that's always been the case, at least I don't recall having ever experienced that, but perhaps I simply never tried.)
It seems python setup.py install
somehow doesn't play well with Sphinx...

a) If you had committed changes to the main repo, you should of course run sage b
before cloning. (It would be better to test with a vanilla Sage library.)
b) Are you sure everything (= all extension modules) got rebuilt, as opposed to just changed modules and those that depend on the changed ones (the latter potentially being many, even if not many got changed)?
c) Is that a regression?
(The current brokenness of sage syncbuild
might be related, although I don't see that sage combinat

a) I only applied the two patches to the scripts repo, nothing to the main repo (I had just built sage, didn't even start it yet).
b) Not 100% but almost since there are far fewer extensions that get rebuilt after pushing/popping the entire combinat queue, and it seemed like the same number of modules after running syncbuild
(which currently erases all cython files). I can't tell you the interesting lines because I didn't think I would need it (and I really don't want to go through rebuilding it all again) At least afterwards, switching between branches is fast. Nevertheless I would think changes in one branch's built extensions would not affect another's...

So it's probably just something I messed up with my install (my guess by applying the patches and then running combinat install
before (rebuilding and) starting sage) and/or system.

I think^{TM} I know what the problem might be, namely the order in which subdirectories of devel/sage/build/
are copied.
Since the odd addition of build_dir
in setup.py
, which already breaks sagesyncbuild
, the Cythongenerated .c
and .cpp
files also end up below build/
.
Now if these get copied (and touched!) after their corresponding .o
and .so
files, the latter will get rebuilt.
Travis, could you switch back to the main branch, remove the line setting build_dir
from setup.py
(or change build_dir='build/cythonized'
to build_dir=None
), do sage b
to get a clean new main repo, and retry your test? B)

Doing so right now, although the change seems to have triggered a recompile/recythonizing of the cython files (it might have been a side effect of one of my other tests). However I need to sleep, so I'll finish the test in the morning. Thanks.

With
def copy_dtree(src_dir, dest_dir): src_root = os.path.abspath(src_dir) dest_root = os.path.abspath(dest_dir) for root, dirs, files in os.walk(src_root): nroot = dest_root + root[len(src_root):] for d in dirs: os.makedirs(nroot+'/'+d) for f in files: if os.path.splitext(f)[1] in [".c",".cpp",".o",".so"]: # ADDED print(" %s" % f) # ADDED os.link(root+'/'+f,nroot+'/'+f) os.utime(nroot+'/'+f, None) sys.stdout.flush(); sys.stderr.flush() # ADDED print "Copying over build directory..." copy_dtree('sage/build', branch + '/build') sys.stdout.flush(); sys.stderr.flush() # ADDED
I can at least confirm that for me all .o
and .so
files get copied after all .c
and .cpp
files have been copied  rather incidentally I think.
comment:53 Changed 7 years ago by
My .o
files get copied, then my .c
and .cpp
, then my .so
(with the changes to setup.py
).

Also I only get the rebuilding of the 7 extensions and switch back to main is trivial.

Any progress? Does this still deserve to be a Sage 5.10 blocker?

At least the .cython_version
part here.
And we should really disable (postpone) Cythongenerated files "outoftree", since this breaks both sageclone
and sagesyncbuild
, i.e., set build_dir
to None
in setup.py
.
([Even] with that, upgrading from beta4+ will still trigger the rebuild of the whole Sage library, but only once.)

Inline patch, worth its own (blocker) ticket:

setup.py
diff git a/setup.py b/setup.py
a b 537 537 ext_modules = cythonize( 538 538 ext_modules, 539 539 nthreads = int(os.environ.get('SAGE_NUM_THREADS', 0)), 540 build_dir = 'build/cythonized', 540 build_dir = None, # Don't "cythonize outoftree" (cf. #14570) until 541 # sageclone and sagesyncbuild can deal with that. 541 542 force=force) 542 543 543 544 open(version_file, 'w').write(Cython.__version__)
EDIT: Added ticket reference to the patch.

I was (more or less reluctantly) going to give this positive review, but then Travis discovered that using build_dir
can also break sageclone
.
So I'm happy provided we make this ticket depend on the above patch / its ticket.

It would be great indeed to have 5.10 ready for the SageCombinat days next week! There is a lot of good stuff there.
