Batch mode async method invoked from -executeMethod unexpectedly terminated by -quit timeout



How to reproduce:
1. Extract "" project
2. Open the project (the Library must be rebuilt with every Unity version or the issue will not reproduce)
3. Close all the Unity Editors
4. Import the attached "build.bat" file into the project
5. In "build.bat" file modify the Editor location
6. Run "build.bat" via cmd
7. Observe cmd and a generated file called "vlog.log" (this takes about 5 minutes)

Expected result: no errors are thrown, in "vlog.log" unity "Builder.VoidDoBuild" function is called and the contents of it are printed
Actual result: error is thrown "Aborting batchmode due to failure: Timeout while executing 'executeMethod' method 'Builder.VoidDoBuild'."

Reproducible with: 2019.2.16f1, 2019.3.0f2, 2020.1.0a15
Could not test with: 2017.4, 2018.4 async functions were not yet implemented, errors are thrown. 2020.1 due to error "Failed to activate/update license via batch mode"

  1. Resolution Note (fix version 2020.1):

    Added -quitTimeout argument where the timeout is passed in seconds. e.g. "-quitTimeout 60" for 60 seconds.

    Requesting backport to 2019.4. The current timeout causes our build pipelines to be fail occasionally.
