Subject Re: [DISCUSS] Publishing advanced/functional tests
Date Fri, 24 Jul 2015 16:42:23 GMT
The Hadoop family of projects has some software that integrates a
continuous integration system so that every time a JIRA is marked as
patch-available, the associated patch attached to the bug will have
integration tests run against it.  I believe that there has been some
process to use git hashes instead of patches.  The CI results are put back
on the JIRA.

This is done using a fairly simple set of scripts.  Apache Yetus is just
forming as a direct-to-top-level spinoff from Hadoop

Proposal is here (don't be fooled by the fact that it looks like an
incubation proposal):


Early code can be found here (don't guess that this is very real yet).
More links can be found in the proposal.


The project has not yet been formed and there are no mailing lists or git
repo yet.
