Subject RE: [PROPOSAL] Minimum Viable CI Integration
Date Sun, 13 Mar 2016 07:58:36 GMT
Thank you Will.

(sorry been on holiday for a week)

I'm about to start a sprint with some of my colleagues to assist with the CI work.....

I've just looked in Jira and there are 47 open tickets against Marvin right now [1], and I
know I'm about to add a whole lot more.

We're going to need some effort to triage the existing tickets and then fix the remaining
tickets and any new ones.

I have made the request. Here is the Jira ticket:

Here is the content of the request...


This request is for personal access tokens with the following permission be added to the
repository in order for the apache cloudstack community to be able to implement Continuious

Permission: (
- `repo:status` - Grants read/write access to public and private repository commit statuses.
This scope is only necessary to grant other users or services access to private repository
commit statuses without granting access to the code.

With this permission the token owner will be able to view the apache/cloudstack repo and will
be able to create and update the status of a pull request. This is the same type of permission
used by the current TravisCI integration, but will allow the community to feedback the status
of distributed CI runs on physical hardware. Here is more detail on the Status functionality:

We would like the following apache/cloudstack community members be sent their own personal
access tokens since they will be providing physical hardware for doing CI for apache/cloudstack
and would like the results of these CI runs to be posted back to the community so the release
managers on the project can better assess the impact of the different pull requests.

By providing each individual their own access token, you maintain fine grain control of their
access to modify pull request statuses from their CI and you can revoke individual tokens
if there is ever a concern.

Some more context around this request...

The Apache CloudStack community has been struggling with code quality issues due to the lack
of CI and the wide breadth of features. Because of the scale of the project, no single organization
or community member has the hardware to fully test the extent of the functionality provided
by the product. This in combination with the attempt to increase the release cadence, the
lack of full CI coverage is becoming a painful reality.

I have developed a very simple CLI tool called `upr` ( which can be easily integrated into any CI implementation used
by the different organizations/individuals to post back the status of their CI runs to the
