Hi GitHub Team,
I’m able to create a pretty reliable crash of a GitHub Codespace on the very widely adopted OSS project, Gradle. Full disclosure, I’m also an employee of Gradle.
To reproduce the crash, create a codespace from the Gradle/Gradle repository. https://github.com/gradle/gradle
Once this is complete, you can run a Gradle task that we regularly use as a baseline to check if a contribution is ready to push as a branch. This can be done by executing
In my experience, the code space crashes after some period of executing this task. Most recently, the Gradle build survived ~8 min before crashing.
