Subject [jira] [Commented] (COUCHDB-2008) CI: Create repeatable images for different operating system configurations
Date Wed, 19 Mar 2014 10:46:45 GMT


Dave Cottlehuber commented on COUCHDB-2008:

[~crigor] these requirements are listed in /DEVELOPERS in the source tree.

Also, I finally got around to using packer to build some test boxes. This is working pretty
nicely. If you want to work on these together and use ansible to drive the configuration let's
do that on the dev@ mailing list next week.

For packer, I used the templates here and built my own boxes.
How about we use these images as a base for automating these builds?

It should also be possible to set up a configuration locally that matches the CI box exactly,
so one can do debugging under the same circumstances the CI server runs tests.
> The requirement for now is that it all needs to work with a set of VMs that we have SSH
access to, but we don’t manage the host. I’m not too familiar with all the automation
and VM image packaging tools, so I don’t know if one or another is useful in that context
or not.
