Whenever any input has a timestamp newer than any output, or if a property accessed in the rule has changed its value since the last run, or if the rule source code has changed.
Modifications to the qbs file only cause rule re-execution if there are relevant changes as described above.

var cmd = new JavaScriptCommand();
cmd.silent = true; // Or cmd.description = "<your choice>";
cmd.sourceCode = function() {}
