I’m experimenting with GitHub Actions as a replacement for Azure DevOps. A big issue we have with Azure DevOps is that we’re often queued for minutes and sometimes hours waiting for a build agent. We think Microsoft are not able to provision enough build agents.
Yesterday I created a sample project with GitHub Actions and the workflow (incl. wait time) was completed in 35 sec. Just to experiment I changed the README to triggered the workflow again. Now it took 2 min 41 sec. How long should we expect build agent provisioning to take?
This is just speculation on my side, but it seems like GitHub Actions and Azure DevOps share a lot of the same features. Is GitHub Actions a fork? And since GitHub was acquired by Microsoft are you sharing the build agent pool with Azure DevOps?
