travis-ci: run previously failed tests first, then slowest to fastest
The Travis-CI machines are in a clean state in the beginning of every run (transient by default). Use the Travis-CI cache feature to make the prove state persistent across consecutive Travis-CI runs on the same branch. This allows to run previously failed tests first and run remaining tests in slowest to fastest order. As a result it is less likely that Travis-CI needs to wait for a single test at the end which speeds up the test suite execution by ~2 min. Travis-CI can only cache entire directories. Prove stores the .prove file always in the t/ directory but we don't want to cache the entire t/ directory. Therefore we create a symlink from $HOME/travis-cache/.prove to t/.prove and cache the $HOME/travis-cache directory. Unfortunately the cache feature is only available (for free) on the Travis-CI Linux environment. Suggested-by: Jeff King <> Signed-off-by: Lars Schneider <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
