Subject Re: [VOTE] Apache CloudStack 4.2.0 (fourth round)
Date Mon, 09 Sep 2013 20:43:36 GMT
 I was actually talking about separate things in relation to this
thread and the other where I mentioned that I'd like to see a release
focused on bugfixing and testing. With that, I'm advocating a test for
every api call and focusing on broadening use case test coverage.

Here, I'm simply talking about taking the support matrix and doing
some vary basic testing. This can be a dozen or so tests, each
platform we say we support needs to successfully deploy a zone and a
vm on every storage type that is in the support matrix. I don't think
this would include plugins (or maybe those are left to the developer
of the third party plugin). For KVM, this is literally a marvin script
away from being there, I don't think there's a ton of work. I have no
idea what we have or can do with vmware, and I'm guessing Xen is
largely covered already.

We'll never be able to cover every use case, I may be able to deploy a
zone with my KVM setup, but not someone else's special network layout.
I'd just like to see sanity checks to say it works, at all, on the
handful of 'supported' systems.
