Subject [jira] [Created] (INFRA-11429) Apache CloudStack - Continuous Integration Support
Date Thu, 10 Mar 2016 23:01:40 GMT
Will Stevens created INFRA-11429:

             Summary: Apache CloudStack - Continuous Integration Support
                 Key: INFRA-11429
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/INFRA-11429
             Project: Infrastructure
          Issue Type: Task
          Components: Github
         Environment: Github: https://github.com/apache/cloudstack
            Reporter: Will Stevens

This request is for personal access tokens with the following permission be added to the https://github.com/apache/cloudstack
repository in order for the apache cloudstack community to be able to implement Continuious

Permission: (https://github.com/settings/tokens)
- `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` (https://github.com/swill/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 community.

Please feel free to engage with us on the dev@cloudstack.apache.org mailing list if anything
is unclear or if you have questions.
