Description

Currently, ``buildvrt`` adds layers as a list of arguments; this can cause problems in case of a very long list. Better save the list in a file, and pass this to the command

no, I don't think so. Another issue in processing, compared "GDAL Tools"/"ftools", is that if I want to merge rasters/vectors or create a virtual rasters then the input layers must be loaded in the project, while gdal tools/ftools allowed to use a folder as input.

I'm 99% sure this is fixed - see https://github.com/qgis/QGIS/blob/master/python/plugins/processing/algs/gdal/buildvrt.py#L91

Regarding the non project layers, that's fixed in commit:5d4d12d371be72b66ae7e307ea84d5c153565dfd , part of

https://github.com/qgis/QGIS/pull/5024. Is there a separate issue for that one?

all good. I was almost sure there was a ticket about the non project layers but can't find it.
