I would not use the GWL to automate *building* software in a distributed
fashion across separate nodes. There are tools that have been designed
specifically for distributed compilation of software that would be more
The GWL is capable of running jobs in a distributed environment. I
started work on an AWS library for Guile, which would allow us to
spawn EC2 instances as needed. The library works in that it provides a
DSL for interacting with AWS, but it needs testing, polishing, and
integration into the GWL.
Currently, I’m on parental leave and don’t really get to do any hacking
for a few months. I would be happy if someone else could take a look at
the AWS library and its integration into the GWL; these tasks are not
trivial, but there are only few unknowns and it really just requires
time to implement the missing bits.
