Subject Re: Jenkins slave able to build BED & RPM
Date Mon, 30 Oct 2017 10:57:38 GMT
Hi Dominik

Thanks for the reply and links. Went already to [1] but it wasn't clear to me what distro
each node was (unless going through every one of them but... there are a lot) As you said,
it seems there isn't a centos or Red Hat slave, I'll file a request to INFRA for this then.

PS: I'm asking the RPM binary to build RPM only, not use RPM packages on Debian (that would
be mad indeed) and for ease of use: would be simpler for us to build everything in one go
rather than having a special jenkins jobs to build only the RPM.

Brooklyn. We currently build only the DEB (on an ubuntu slave) but I couldn't find any other
slave running debian-like distro with RPM installed
