LinuxFest Northwest report

EDIT: recording link added! Hi folks! This weekend was LinuxFest Northwest 2017, and as usual I was down in Bellingham to attend it. Had a good time, again as usual. Luckily I got to do my talk first thing and get it out of the way. Here’s a recording, and here’s the slide deck. It […]

Automated *non*-critical path update functional testing for Fedora

Yep, this here is a sequel to my most recent best-seller, Automated critical path update functional testing for Fedora 🙂 When I first thought about running update tests with openQA, I wasn’t actually thinking about testing critical path packages. I just made that the first implementation because it was easy. But I first thought about […]

Automated critical path update functional testing for Fedora

A little thing I’ve been working on lately finally went live today…this thing: Several weeks ago now, I adapted Fedora’s openQA to run an appropriate subset of tests on critical path updates. We originally set up our openQA deployment strictly to run tests at the distribution compose level, but I noticed that most of the […]

Fedora Media Writer Test Day (Fedora 26 edition) on Thursday 2017-04-20!

It’s that time again: we have another test day coming up this week! Thursday 2017-04-20 will be another Fedora Media Writer Test Day. We’ve run these during the Fedora 24 and 25 cycles as well, but we want to make sure the tool is ready for the Fedora 26 release, and also test a major […]

Fedora 26 Alpha released, and blivet-gui Anaconda Test Day on Thursday (2016-04-06)

Hi again folks! Two bits of Fedora 26 news today. First off, Fedora 26 Alpha has been released! It got delayed by a couple of weeks due to rather a grab-bag of issues – mainly problems with FreeIPA and several kernel bugs – but the delays did at least mean we wound up with a […]

Fedora 26 crypto policy Test Day today (2017-03-30)!

Sorry for the short notice, folks! Today is Fedora 26 crypto policy Test Day. This event is intended to test the Fedora 26 changes and updates to the ongoing crypto policy feature which intends to provide a centralized and unified configuration system for the various cryptography libraries commonly used in Fedora. The Test Day page […]

Getting started with Pagure CI

I spent a few hours today setting up a couple of the projects I look after, fedfind and resultsdb_conventions, to use Pagure CI. It was surprisingly easy! Many thanks to Pingou and Lubomir for working on this, and of course Kevin for helping me out with the Jenkins side. You really do just have to […]

Announcing the resultsdb-users mailing list

I’ve been floating an idea around recently to people who are currently using ResultsDB in some sense – either sending reports to it, or consuming reports from it – or plan to do so. The idea was to have a group where we can discuss (and hopefully co-ordinate) use of ResultsDB – a place to […]

The future of Fedora QA

Welcome to version 2.0 of this blog post! This space was previously occupied by a whole bunch of longwinded explanation about some changes that are going on in Fedoraland, and are going to be accelerating (I think) in the near future. But it was way too long. So here’s the executive summary! First of all: […]

openQA and Autocloud result submission to ResultsDB

So I’ve just arrived back from a packed two weeks in Brno, and I’ll probably have some more stuff to post soon. But let’s lead with some big news! One of the big topics at Devconf and around the RH offices was the ongoing effort to modernize both Fedora and RHEL’s overall build processes to […]
