Yes that is the same (or at least similar), I'm using the following
This BuildStep is only executed after the same step in the previous
build is completed. For build steps that use a weaker assumption and
only rely on the output from the same build step of the early builds,
this improves the concurrency.
That means, the warnings computation n+1 needs to wait for warnings
computation n. Otherwise it would not be possible to compute the number
of new warnings.
Yes that would be possible and shouldn't be complicated. Can you please
create an issue in our issue tracker?
