comment Ensuring a repeatable directory ordering in linux
@matt5784 The problem is that people look at the failure, think "it doesnt work on Circle", and then stop using us. Especially if it works sometimes, but not others - that's real fun.

We're definitely going to do this. However, it would be useful if they actually became our customer so that we could do this.

@Michuelnik This problem affects tests much more than deployment Deployment mostly happens on Linux, but if something fails they'll fix it. Tests mostly run on OSX so if something fails it must be our fault.

@Michuelnik There's no real correct order, but something repeatable would mean that we get the same result every time, which would be better than nothing. Ideally, we'd use the HFS+ ordering, which I think is alphabetical.

comment Ensuring a repeatable directory ordering in linux
The problem is that we did not write the code we're running. We run customers code, and we have no control over how the code was written. So our problem is really that we're getting blamed for the problem, because it works on their machine but not ours. If we could force everyone to write correct code, we would, but that's not within our power :)

comment Execute multiple ssh commands in the same shell (programatically)
um, yeah :( Right now, rvm does, but this is for arbitrary commands so I can't live with this problem long term :( Good answer though.

@Kyle: sure, I agree. I guess I'm just looking for specifics like "ptys are able to do X, channels can do Y, so you just need to Z the X and W the Y, and you should be all set".

We are using an ssh library (jcraft.com/jsch), but I dont think that using one is sufficient information to solve the problem. Can you describe more about how we would use a single bash process for all the commands in Net:SSH?

@Jeremy: there is no script. This is a program to run commands remotely under various configurations and store their results.

comment Can I specify a port in an entry in my /etc/hosts on OS X?
If I could upvote this 1000 times I would. Using the arbitrary port is genius. Thanks - works perfectly.
