We (jenkins-admin at freebsd.org) have been busy the 5 months since BSDCan
you can see by our status report, which lists what we have done, and what
our future plans are:
Integrating Jenkins with Kyua on amd64 was a major milestone which was
was even mentioned on the Jenkins web site:
Now, where to take this further (such as i386) is an interesting question.
Personally, I would like to see:
-> integration of automated kyua testing with the FreeBSD release
-> more involvement from FreeBSD developers, and even companies such as
-> write tests
-> suggest and implement new tests (network, storage, VM, etc.)
-> help with devops maintenance of the existing
-> improve bhyve support in libvirt
-> set up their own Jenkins build environments outside of
FreeBSD, and help test things in their own private environments
I've had requests for;
-> running tests in bhyve VM's with very small memory footprints
-> running tests in MIPS environment (Adrian Chadd)
-> running Java JDK tests (Kip Macy)
-> i386 builds (Garrett Cooper)
There are a lot of different directions to take this, but without more
people (and companies) pitching in and helping out,
progress is limited by bodies working on the stuff.
I will be at the MeetBSD Vendor summit (not the conference) Nov. 3-4, so
anyone interested in pushing this stuff forward can talk to me there.
